Molas Nalunega Island
The Mola is the symbol of the tradition and culture of the Guna ethnic people. This garment, with decorative weaving of complex designs, is made with the technique of reverse appliqué. From the geometric forms of its beginnings, it has evolved with the years to realist or abstract forms, inspired in nature.
Its origins date back to the tradition of the Guna woman of painting their bodies using natural colours, which, with colonization gave way to the creation of this traditional garment that is a true work of textile art.Close
