Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a brocade type textile, the Songket fabric type belongs to a group of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Brunei. It is hand-woven in silk or cotton, and patterned with gold or silver colour threads. This particular fabric might have been made in the center of production in Minangkabau, West Sumatra. The estimate is based on similar sold in well advertised auctions.
