A Little History of Applique'. The word appliqué comes from the French word appliquer, meaning to put on or to lay on. As a method of decoration, applique' has been a popular technique and has a long history, with the earliest known example being a canopy of leather in Egypt believed to date from 980 BC. However, it is highly likely that other cultures were using appliqué before this time. Appliqué is widely used throughout the world, as in many cultures it is common to decorate oneself and one's surroundings.
