vintage 2 toucans on maroon 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. One bird’s eye is missing a sequin. The size is 12 ” by 16-1/2″, perfect for a pillow or to frame as part of a grouping.
