The songket patterns and motifs that are displayed in this gallery are mostly traditional songket patterns and motifs of Malaysia.  More than 200 photographs of songket patterns and songket motifs were collected from various places in Terengganu including Muzium Negeri Terengganu at Losong, Wan Manang Songket at Durian Burung, Terengganu Songket at Gong Tok Nasir, and Fatimah Besar Songket at Losong and personal collectors.  Other than capturing photographic images, other patterns and motifs are scanned directly from books available in libraries in Institut Kraftangan Rawang, Perbadanan Kemajuan Kraftangan Malaysia at Jalan Tun Perak, Perpustakaan Tun Abdul Razak at Universiti Teknologi MARA and Perpustakaan Besar Shah Alam, Selangor.
