Subject: Molas--(without the codes --smile fellow digest members)
Molas are works of art created by the women of the Central American Cuna(or
Kuna) tribe, of the San Blas Islands in Panama. They are made using an
applique process referred to as "reverse applique". Several layers of
cloth varying in color are loosely stitched together. Fine-tipped scissors
are used to cut the top layers. The cut edges are folded back and stitched
to the layer below.
