Pipli is a small village between Bhubaneswar and Puri in Orissa and is renowned for its brightly coloured applique work.

Pilgrims coming to visit the Jagannath temple stop at Pipli to buy banners as offerings to the temple gods as well as small canopies for their domestic deities and for festivals. Pipliwork is supplied to monastic houses for their religious processions. In recent times, Pipliwork is used in making cushion covers and bedspreads and several items which are of contemporary use.

Canopies and colourful sun umbrellas also showcase this bright and vibrant form of applique work.
