Kuna Mola
Handcrafted in Panama by the Kuna Indians

Mola Art, also called Kuna Mola, is an amazing creation by the women of the Kuna or Cuna tribe from Central America.  Living directly on the San Blas Islands of Panama, these women create some of the most gorgeous pieces of art imaginable.  Using a special applique process called reverse applique the women take numerous layers of cloth, each of varying color.  These layers are then stitched together loosely while the top layers are fine-tipped cut with special scissors.  The cut edges are then folded back at which time they are stitched to the bottom layer.

The word Mola translates into "blouse".   Although Mola Art was originally artwork done on women's blouses as a means of adding beautiful color and design, today you will find Mola Art done on more than just blouses and in many cases, used as an actual form of art that is framed and proudly displayed.  The wonderful aspect of the Mola pieces is that they are all so unique and vibrant.  Women have the freedom to create beautiful designs of nature, which today, has become an increasingly popular type of apparel worn in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
