The Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry will soon petition for tenun songket, a golden fabric, to be registered with UNESCO as a product of Indonesia’s cultural heritage.

“There is a strong will to have it registered like we did with batik, and we will do it,” minister Mari Elka Pangestu said on Sunday as quoted by

She said the registration would not be easy because it required detailed proof and verification of tenun songket as a cultural heritage. Therefore, a thorough preparation is necessary.

She added that, if UNESCO accepted the registration, Indonesians would play a part in songket living up to its reputation by preserving it and making it a part their daily lives.

“This is actually a job for all of us. Once it, like batik, is accepted by UNESCO as a cultural heritage, our job does not end there,” she said.
