Silk Appliqué or Ribbonwork is an extremely important art form. The earliest Ribbonwork was done with silk ribbon. More recently, silk ribbons have given way to bolt silk, nylon, and rayon; designs are cut from one color of fabric, sewed onto a panel of another color, and then sewed as a decorative border or pattern to a broadcloth or other cloth garment. Although geometric designs are used to a considerable extent, the majority of the beautifully elaborate patterns are curvilinear or floral.
