A hand made bag in applique work is a multipurpose bag used to carry stuff and/or store items.
Applique is an intricate sewing technique popular in Gujarat. It is decorative hand needlework in which different colour and size fragments of fabric are stitched onto a larger piece to create a design or pattern. Made on a white cloth it has free hand designs in red and blue colored fabrics. It has a string attached on its flap cover to tie and lock the bag.
Applique is used mainly for festive occasions but is deeply embedded in the lives of many Aggro-pastoral communities.
