The art form is typically dependent on four basic colours i.e., red, white, black & yellow to produce a striking effect.

In recent years, green colour and embroidery work has been applied vigorously enlivening the craft even more. Cutting of cloths to sizes, stitching of cloths with different colours as per design and sketch is the main process of this craft. 

The work involved is mostly of hand.  The artisans deftly stitch traditional motifs such as elephants, peacocks and flowers on umbrellas, canopies and fans on cloth background to form harmonious and colourful patterns with embroidery work.

In fact, the basic inspiration for this art form is mainly religious in nature.  Appliqué work, today, reflects these modern trends and is a flourishing industry. Items like garden umbrella and lamp shade provides a good export market.
