⭐THE MOLA STORY: Molas are undoubtedly the most famous art produced in Panama.
The Wounaan and Embera women have been sewing these works of arts for
centuries. Molas are hand-made using a reverse appliqué technique using several
layers of different colored cloth. The largest pattern is typically cut from
the top layer and smaller patterns from each underlying layer. Geometric molas
are the most traditional. Originating from ancient body paintings. Designs
usually portray wildlife in the Rainforest. Inspiration comes from the nature
and beauty that surrounds them.
⭐WOMEN FOUNDED: MolaMagic was envisioned by Janet Marie Brockman with the
mission to empower the Indigenous Women of Color of Panama by helping them
reach a global market for their handmade products. For the past twenty years
all sales revenues have been reinvested into the artisan community of Panama.
This includes education, medical care, land purchase, tools, and other needs.
