What is a mola?

It is a colorful fabric handmade by Kuna Indians. Each of them can take weeks and even months in the making through a set of technical fabrics which are then cut and embroidered. The mola shares stories and legends; each figure, line and detail found in these mysterious fabric is a journey through time and imagination of these women.

It is a female tradition of a community located on the border between Colombia and Panama. They, Kuna women, use the mola to dress, then we reuse to create the magical series of unique and unrepeatable accessories. Each item of our collection takes in sewing the dreams of millions of natives and artisans of Colombia. Molas, in each design, share landscapes and realities of the most beautiful paradises of Colombia.
