Mola broderi

Fler foton finns här >>

Molas are works of art created by the women of the Central American Cuna (or Kuna) tribe, of the San Blas Islands in Panama. They are made using an appliqué process referred to as "reverse appliqué".  Several layers of cloth varying in color are loosely stitched together. Fine-tipped scissors are used to cut the top layers.  The cut edges are folded back and stitched to the layer below. Mola means "blouse" and were originally part of the woman's dress -- now they are sold around the world and are collected by many.
