The Minangkabau are famous for its traditional dress and women’s traditional headdress. The traditional dress consists of silk robes with metallic thread woven into the material. The silk robes are made with the handlooming of silk kain songket, woven with a supplementary weft of foil thread, which creates a gleaming metallic design. As the old kain songket decay, the valuable threads are picked out and recycled. The women's traditional headdress is a turban with sharp conical points called Tikuluak-tanduak, which resemble buffalo horns.
