Our lively, mola fabric folk art cat was brought to life in hand stitched, authentic, mola applique.. and filled with oh so delicious French lavender buds!

This original design is both contemporary & traditional. Those wonderful curvilinear elements are called 'serkan' designs.. based on ancient Kuna body painting decoration. Colorful, tribal & really stunning! Love the red and green one on the cat's forehead and the two layer spirals all over the cat's body!

Check out those long white whiskers! Always an important detail on all of our cats. These are called 'seega sueeet' in the Kuna dialect & are particularly well sewn on this cat.. as is the rest of the hand sewn applique.

Colors are vibrant.. on crisp black and white.

She would look great on a bookshelf or next to your computer like mine. Why not start your collection?
