VIBRANT VINTAGE MOLA HANDMADE TEXTILE ART
COMPARE TO $250, ETSY.
MEASURES APPROXIMATELY 20W X 18H.
Absolutely STUNNING vintage molas fiber/textile art handmade by the Central American Kuna Indian tribe in Panama. Bright, vibrant color cutouts really pop over burgundy background. Truly distinctive conversation/accent piece to add to any retro, boho, hippie, eclectic or worldly home.
Molas are hand-made using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers (usually two to seven) of different-colored cloth (usually cotton) are sewn together; the design is then formed by cutting away parts of each layer. The edges of the layers are then turned under and sewn down. Often, the stitches are nearly invisible. This is achieved by using a thread the same color as the layer being sewn, sewing blind stitches, and sewing tiny stitches. The finest molas have extremely fine stitching, made using tiny needles.
The largest pattern is typically cut from the top layer, and progressively smaller patterns from each subsequent layer, thus revealing the colors beneath in successive layers. This basic scheme can be varied by cutting through multiple layers at once, hence varying the sequence of colours; some molas also incorporate patches of contrasting colours, included in the design at certain points to introduce additional variations of color.
