The term ‘Applique’ is of French origin and it refers to a technique in which smaller pieces of fabric are sewed upon a larger piece of fabric to create a patchwork design. It is an ancient technique used to create various decorative and other useful items. One can see various items made through the Applique technique nowadays like wall hangings, bed sheets, purses, cushion covers, sitting mats, clothing, etc. It is a technique which is economical though being remarkably famous in every field of fashion and lifestyle. Sometimes worn out pieces of cloth can be used to create beautiful patterns. One can also see tents of nomadic people in deserts with elaborate applique work. Today artists also use mirrors, beads and other metallic pieces over applique work to enhance its beauty.
