It is my pleasure to introduce you to my passion in life.
I am a collector and a seller of molas, I appreciate the beauty and colors of this art, the hours of work that is put into each piece and every Kuna Artist for giving the best of their Visual Art.
Every Mola from Mola Art & Craft is made with care, artistic quality and expressions, truly exquisite, unique, one of a kind piece, and the special gift for your love ones.
The Mola reverse appliques are sold as applique blocks and used for art lessons, by quilters, crafters all over the world, the sale of molas is a main source of income for the Kuna womens and contribute to preserve the Kuna cultural identity and traditions.

Hi Everyone: Hope all of you are doing good. I love to see
that many people out there are keeping up with my blog.
That's great and actually give me more inspiration to keep
posting new topics :-) I will try to include some topics in
spanish as well...
Frequently, I received questions about what are the main
things I do with my molas???
today I decided to speak up a little bit and share with you a
I also want to mention that we have the book Molas and
Kuna Traditions, you can buy this book through my website:
How to display your Molas???
It is entirely up to you, what you want to do with your mola.
I personally love framing my molas, making something for
my home that I can use, quilts, pillows, placemats, tablecloth, aprons, purse, pot holders, mola panels can be worn by sewing them into a jacket, skirt, blouse, etc...
The mola looks better in person and the gold frame add more beauty to this particular mola.
You can also frame your small molitas (framed in Panama)
front and back of my pillows, I decide to use a black fabric on the
back, it actually give great contrast specially because I use a mola
with black background.
I didn't have to necessarily use black, it will also look great with the
orange fabric (front and back).
