Mola Textile Music

 

Hand stitched by the Panama tribe. The traditional textile craft is handmade from several layers of different colored fabric embroidered together in patterns. 

 

Mola means clothing in the Kuna language! These brightly colored textile art panels were used to make decorative women's blouses and skirts to uphold the value of their tradition and identity as Kuna people. These designs were originally a tradition where Kuna women would paint their bodies with geometric designs.

 

The traditional textile craft is handmade from several layers of different colored fabric embroidered together in patterns, cutting away parts of each layer and hand reverse appliqueing it. Molas were discovered up to 170 years ago in Panama by the women of the Kuna tribe in the San Blas islands.
