Handicraft Villages, Pipli and Raghurajpur

Patchwork quilts and applique work are a specialty of Pipli. The village in its entirety depends on the sale of such crafts to power their economy. The streets of Raghurajpur are similarly lined with artisans toiling away in the heat. Every home is an artist’s studio with Pattachitra paintings (religious and tribal themes) on cloth – adorning the walls. If walking through the Heritage Villages seems like a dredge, you could hop on a bicycle and whizz past smiles and waves!
