15 km south of Bhubaneswar, on the highway to Puri, is a village of artisans famous for their colourful appliqu�-work fabrics. The craft originated to serve temples but nowadays is used for garden umbrellas, cushion covers, wall hangings and bags. They follow the same techniques, in which cloth is cut into bird, flower, animal and other decorative shapes, and stitched on to fabric of a contrasting colour.
