This mola is a handmade fabric panel that forms part of the traditional outfit of the Guna people. Molas are handmade using a reverse appliqué technique with several layers of different-colored cloth. 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
