There is no history behind the evolution and origin of appliqué work, it is believed to have started in the 17th and 18th centuries when clothes and decorative pieces were used in the Jagannath Temple in Puri during religious processions. The handicrafts adorn each shop in varied patterns and sizes―from umbrellas to lanterns, cushion covers, bags, pillow covers to canopies and much more. The technique of creating appliqué is basically cutting up various coloured fabrics which are then sewn on to the surface of another foundation fabric. The cloth patches are simple and motifs mostly revolve around gods, animals, birds, flowers and plants.
