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: February is gone and now March, spring is on the way. I am glad.
Every month I will do my best to post some new topics for all of you who are out there following my Blog...
Quilters love using molas as a center piece on a quilt, they also appreciate all the work that has gone into each piece, the different techniques use on each mola, as well as the variety of designs and colors.
A quilter will be inspired by the unique work on each mola, each technique is different (applique or reverse applique), the fine stitch on each piece, the mix of colors and how molas can be incorporated into any quilting project.
A quilter will be inspired by the unique work on each mola panel, each technique is different (applique or reverse applique), the fine stitch on each piece, the mix of colors and how molas can be incorporated into any quilting project.
One of the hottest collectible items and the price will increase within the years. They can be frame, made into pillows, quilt, bedspread, wall hangings.
The Art of the Kuna Women's of San Blas is just amazing.
Here are some molas that give us the Wow and that as soon as I see them, I will say I like it and I want it... I must have this one... forget it, I will buy them all, that's me shopping for molas.
I am happy to know that many of the molas on my website were choosen to be published in one of the book by Fairchild Publications, and now they are going to go to an Ebook format, and a new project that will help us to publish the molas international as well, we are working on that project, how nice...
P.S It has been really busy here at molaartandcraft and I am listing new religious molas for Easter. I promise I will post new topics soon!!!

From Placemats to quilts, molas are easy to incorporate in all your craft projects.
I choose this crab molita and made a placemat and finished with the stitch in the dish.
They make a perfect gift for friends, family, co-workers.
I love this butterfly mola, so many colors and beauty....
Butterflies, oh just lovely, some thread on my way when I took the picture, but that is always remove before sending the items to you.
