vintage small orange bird on pink branch 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 fine cotton embroidery floss used for the embroidery. The size is 8-1/2″ by 9-1/2″, perfect to edge with fabric for a pillow or to frame as part of a grouping.
