Motif and Applique

Appliqué is widely used throughout the world as in many cultures it is common to decorate oneself and one’s surroundings. Various cultures have even developed their own style of appliqué, e.g. the Cuna Indians of the San Blas Islands, off the coast of Panama have developed a style of appliqué called mola work. The designs used are often symbolic. Often, the women get together to appliqué and have a social time. Appliqué has also been used by various churches for religious garments, decorations such as wall hangings, and altar cloths. Often these items have symbolic or ceremonial significance with the appliqué consisting of symbols, such as the star to represent the bright star that shone above the manger of baby Jesus, and the cross to represent Christianity. Other designs like spirals are used simply for decoration.
