A mola cloth decorated with zoomorphic shapes. The Cuna people of Panama developed a unique type of applique, the mola cloth, done mostly in small rectangles that were used as front pieces for their blouses. Originally molas were made in few colors, one fabric superimposed on the other with the upper one cut and sewn down. Later versions get more intricate, using more layers and complex designs.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
