Though the craft is not unknown in other parts of India, it is in Odisha and especially in Pipli(20 kms from Bhubaneswar and 40 kms from Puri) that the craft has a living and active tradition continuing for centuries.

As with many other handicrafts of Odisha, the roots of the applique art/craft form is intertwined with the rituals and traditions of Lord Jagannath, the presiding deity of the Puri temple.
