Regular price $150.00 Sale

Vintage Mola cloth handmade by the Guna (previously spelled Kuna) people of Panama.

Mola is a reverse appliqué technique, similar to the technique used in quilting, but using multiple layers of different-colored cloth that are first sewn together before a design is created by cutting away different layers. This Mola features vibrant tones of burgundy, green, orange, and white. A graphic medallion features intersecting latch-hooked motifs. The highly contrasting colors add interest and excitement to the piece. 

The fabric is in excellent condition.
