Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
16" x 19" (40.5 x 48cm). A beautiful handmade reverse applique mola representing song birds and flowers. This handstiched mola pillow will brighten any room or decor. The design is made using fabrics of different colors and very small stiches of a variety of colored threads. No machine is used to make the design.
To complete the pillow, I trimmed the mola with an olive green cotton strip to accentuate the yellow and garnet. The back of the pillow has the same green cotton fabric. In addition, the whole cover is lined with muslin. A matching zipper was sewn on the bottom of the pillow so that both sides of the pillow can be used.
Note: Due to its odd size, the pillow is sold with the insert which was made specifically for the cover. It is sold as one piece and ready for shipping.
I have several mola pillows available - click here to see another: https://www.etsy.com/listing/109056907/throw-pillow-cover-tropical-accent
My molas are purchased in Panama. The Kuna indians of Panama hand sew their molas to be used as front and back panels for their blouses. Traditional molas depict geometrical patterns as well as realistic designs of flowers, birds and animals. Molas are hand sewn using a reverse appliqué technique and can take 2 weeks to 6 months to complete. The Kuna people live in Panama, Central America and are a proud people. Making and selling their molas is an important source of revenue for them and I am proud to support their efforts.
Please note: as the text says above, these molas have been used as decorative accent to clothing and may have slight wear which adds to the beauty of the cloth. I always wash and press my molas before using them.
