The issue being discussed is the use of traditional songket motifs (a type of hand-woven fabric with complex designs and patterns), where they are only applied on fabric.

Songket is a fabric that belongs to the brocade family of textiles of Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. It is hand-woven in silk or cotton, and intricately patterned with gold or silver threads. The metallic threads stand out against the background cloth to create a shimmering effect. In the weaving process the metallic threads are inserted in between the silk or cotton weft (latitudinal) threads in a technique called supplementary weft weaving technique.

In this pioneering study of songket, Selvanayagam provides a fascinating historical survey of the cloth, including its uses, weaving techniques, design structure, and offers a full description of the complex register of motifs and patterns ornamenting the surface.
