Kuna Mola

The mola is approx 13 3/4" x 18".

The kunas live on the san blas islands and on the darien peninsula in kuna yala
Kuna women make and wear blouses decorated with appliqued cloth, reverse appliqued cloth and embroidery.

The blouses, and their decorative front and rear panels, are referred to as molas.
The best molas are amazing works of textile folk art – on par with great quilts from america or asafo flags from ghana...
