Songkok Malaysia Frequently Asked Questions

What is songkok?

Songkok, also known as peci or kopiah, is a black cap worn by Muslim males. Some would wear it only when praying at the mosque while some older Melayu men would wear it on a daily basis. Songkok is usually made with black felt, velvet, or cotton. Now, songkok are available in colours other than black like white, light blue, purple and more.

Songkok is not only popular in Malaysia, but it is also worn by Muslim men in Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, southern Philippines, and southern Thailand. Some Southeast Asian historical figures like Sukarno and Tunku Abdul Rahman, are known to have donned the songkok on a daily basis.
