Molas

Traditional Indian Molas


Molas are created by a reverse appliqué process in which two to five layers of cloth are basted together, then patterns cut through the layers, exposing the cloth below.

We bought 7 Molas for $32 in El Valle from a Kuna woman, and another 7 for $15 in Panama City.

For more information, check out www.panart.com and www.conexus.si.edu . Try making your own Mola.
