Lobster Guna Mola Cloth - 1'3 x 1'5

Regular price $120.00 Sale

Vintage Mola cloth handmade by the Guna (previously spelled Kuna) people of the San Blas Islands.

Mola is a reverse appliqué technique, similar to the technique used in quilting but using multiple layers of different-colored cloth that are first sewn together before a design is created by cutting away different layers. These cloths are traditionally made in pairs to be worn on the front and back of women's blouses.

This Mola features a central lobster motif.

The fabric is in good condition. One edge comes in.
