vintage 2 chickens mola applique embroidery
Molas are a hand sewn, layered reverse-applique needlework technique traditional to the Kuna people of Panama. These were made for the tourist trade in the 1970s, are completely hand-stitched and in excellent condition. The fabric is a lightweight cotton much like muslin with floss used for the embroidery. The green is not quite as electric as it appears in the photos, it’s more avocado! The size is 10-1/2 ” by 14-1/2″, perfect for a pillow or to frame as part of a grouping.
