The purpose of this paper is to describe the role of the fabric community in Palembang from time to time. Fabric is a vital necessity that can not be separated from daily life of Palembang community. At the beginning, this vital need only be met by using wood as a raw material. On the development, the processing of wood fiber materials was growing. In addition the use of cotton fabrics from India and China silk is also increasingly becoming an integral part in the life of the archipelago. Palembang occupied a special position in the cloth trade, especially as most potential fabric lovers in Southeast Asia, together with Jambi. Both of the regions known as the Southeast Sumatra. The function of fabric for Palembang society is very diverse, ranging from meeting the needs of body armor consisting of fabric, and scarves, to other functions. These functions among others, as a symbol of one's status, prizes, a medium of exchange, pay fines, media peace, a symbol of the bond, the means of diplomacy, prestige and heritage, thus, the position of Palembang as a connoisseur and developer of cloth until now continues. So normal that until now Palembang is famous as the sole producer of the most beautiful fabric known as the Queen of fabric which is Songket Fabric.
