This craft is closely connected with Jagannath cult of Orisa. The articles made of appliqué work are traditionally used at temples and cultural festivals. The major centres of this crafts are Pipili, Puri, Banmalipur, Kanchana in Ganjam, Sonepur etc.

Present scenario: The traditional appliqué works have evolved into modern appliqué or patch work through design interventions. These days articles made of appliqué like garden umbrella, ladies umbrellas, lamp shade, door & window screens, hand bags, wall handing etc. are found in every household. These products are also exported to European and Pan American countries.
