Photographer's Note

Chai stop in the hot morning of Pipli... in the background it's possible to see the colours of the appliqué exposed along the main road of Pipli.

Orissa's appliqué work is one of the most fascinating handicrafts of India.

The Pipli village in Puri district of Orissa is the main center of appliqué work. Rows of shops in Pipli flaunt appliquéd handbags, bed sheets, wall hangings, purses, cushion covers, letter cases, pillow covers, canopies and garden umbrellas.
