Molas are a traditional form of art where the Kuna indigenous people of Panama capture their vision of life and send a message to the world.
The mola, or molas, is a handmade material that forms part of the traditional outfit of the Guna people. The full costume traditionally includes a patterned wrapped skirt, a red and yellow headscarf, arm and leg beads, a gold nose ring and earrings in addition to the mola blouse.
In Dulegaya, the Guna’s native language, “mola” means “shirt” or “clothing”. The mola originated with the tradition of Guna women painting their bodies with geometric designs, using available natural colors; in later years these same designs were woven in cotton, and later still, sewn using cloth bought from the European settlers of Panamá.
