Pipli Applique & Patchwork from Orissa is a traditional handicraft in which colourful patches of fabric cut in the form of decorative motifs and animals are super imposed on other contrasting fabrics and sewn in.Absolutely love these vibrant giant umbrellas which are usually made during the festive occasion of the 'Rath Jatra' or Festival of Chariot in Puri.
These can be used as beach umbrellas or parasols in your balconies & gardens.

Love the interesting patchwork with mirrors.Bring in some Pipli Work into your homes in the form of wall hangings, cushion covers and these amazing lampshades.

Can almost visualised these lampshades brightening up an outdoor party with their colourful hues...
