Barmer appliqué was traditionally sewn on bedspreads of black or brown bases. Motifs were almost entirely inspired by nature: trees, leaves, flowers and animals. Women in six villages in Barmer district in western Rajasthan produce these appliques. An elaborate bedspread may take nearly a month to complete.

Tilonia appliqué, the style of appliqué taught to women in Tilonia, uses designs adapted frommandanas which are traditional patterns on floors in Rajasthan. Abstract motifs are cut from block print fabrics and then stitched onto a fabric base.
