Item details

These are two mola panels that came sewn together. My mother purchased them from a Kuna family while on a Caribbean cruise in the early 1990's. They have beautiful color with the fish being a maroon color. They would be great for a purse, quilt, pillow case, or just in a frame and hung on the wall. Each panel is 17 inches long and 13 inches wide. Altogether it is 26 inches long.

A little bit about molas..
The word mola can mean the actual blouse or it can refer to the panel of intricate applique. There are two panels on each blouse, one in the front, and one on the back. The blouses are worn by the women of Kuna Yala, Panama. Their land is located on the San Blas Island on the Caribbean Sea. They are very unique, made by stacking many layers together and cutting from the top layer down to the lower layers. This is called a reverse applique technique.
