Some believe that the idea of appliqué may have come from patching holes in worn garments or linens.

    One Example of that art form is found in the Boulak Museum in Cairo, Egypt. It is a ceremonial canopy dating from 980 B. Queen Esi-mem-kev funeral tent was made out of that material. The canopy is made of gazelle hide decorated with symbolic serpents and blossoms. The appliquĂ©d pieces are dyed in various colours of pink, blue green and golden yellow.
