Patchwork or "pieced work" is a form of needlework that involves sewing together pieces of fabric into a larger design. The larger design is usually based on repeat patterns built up with different fabric shapes (which can be different colors). These shapes are carefully measured and cut, making them easy to piece together..
The earliest tangible evidence of patchwork is found in Egypt as long ago as the time of the Pharaohs. The Museum of Cairo claims to have a piece that is made from gazelle hide and composed of beautifully colored pieces, and served as a canopy for an Egyptian queen about 960 b.c.

Each piece is unique and is 100% handmade in Egypt by skilled craftsman who learned the art of appliqué patchwork through generations.
