|Silk Appliqué / Ribbonwork|
||Silk Appliqué or Ribbonwork is an extremely important art form.
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.
