Mola the traditional Indian textile garment Masterclass
What to expect
We all used to provide real incentive experience to our clients, and we try go beyond the history and culture of our country through our experiences.
For this experience we have created an official class on how to make a Mola with the main objective of contributing to the work of our local artisans and their culture in an international way.
The importance of the mola for the Guna, is that it is one of the main works of art that identify their tradition and culture, as well as being a highly acquired piece for visitors to our country.
It is a once in a lifetime experience!

WHAT IS A MOLA:
The mola blouse is an important symbol of the Guna culture. It’s a traditional textile art form made by the Guna indigenous woman of Panama. Molas are fabric sewn on to panels that feature complex, bright, multi-layer designs using a reverse applique technique.
Molas originated from the Guna tradition where women painted their bodies with geometric designs, using naturally available colors. After contact with missionaries, the Gunas began to transfer their traditional geometric designs on to fabrics using the reverse applique technique.

HOW MUCH DOES AN ITEM COST IN THE MARKET:
Molas are often sold in pairs consisting of the back and front panels of a blouse. The molas are usually two variations on a theme. Matched molas complement each other and should be displayed or used together for the greatest impact. Depending the design and size you can buy the molas about $10.00, $20.00 to $100.00 or $500.00
