Uniendo Culturas...........The artistry of a mola reflects a synthesis of traditional Cuna culture with the influences of the modern world. Mola art developed when Cuna women had access to store bought yard goods. Mola designs are often inspired by modern graphics such as political posters, labels, pictures from books and cartoons, as well as traditional themes from Kuna legends and culture.
Geometric molas are the most traditional, having developed from ancient body painting designs. Many hours of careful sewing are required to create a fine mola. The ability to make an outstanding mola is a source of status among Cuna women. Our concept is to keep this very important part of our culture going and inspire the rest of the world to share their culture with ours.
