"Textile Treats"

Molas are possibly the most incredible example of the indigenous Panamanian artisanal tradition. Intricate reverse appliqué embroidery has been practiced by the Kuna people for hundreds of years to make the colorful, geometric patterns of animals, plants, and any other form the artist cares to imagine. At Flory Saltzman Molas, customers are treated to a remarkable array of items demonstrating this technique, with the textiles sewn into bags, shirts, coin-purses, headbands, and simply sold as patches to take on whatever purpose necessary. The encyclopedic place has options for every budget, from small designs costing pocket change to elaborate projects priced at hundreds of dollars.
