Famous Applique Work of Pipli

The village of Pipili is well known for its applique work. Applique comes from the French word appliquer, meaning "to put on". There are two variants of this technique: appliqué, where a fabric shape is sewn over a base layer, and reverse applique, wherein two layers of fabric are laid down, and a shape is subsequently cut out from the upper layer, exposing the lower layer, before both are stitched together.
