Molas: Animals and Applique
Molas are a textile art form created by the Guna Indians of Panama. Guna tribeswomen living in Columbia and Panama use mola applique, a form of reverse applique incorporating three or more layers of fabric where each color used requires a layer of fabric. The appliques use multi-colored and multi-shaped designs. Traditional molas are found in museums and private collections and are still used as garments.
