To accompany the Mola Sasa x La Veste shirt we decided to bring our iconic Kuna textiles to this new, but already coveted mini bag shape. Sized to fit your essentials, it is secured by a fold-over flap that closes with hidden magnetic clasps and is finished with a wooden handle and leather strap. Wear yours as a crossbody or clutch and add the perfect amount of color and sophistication to your everyday look.

The Kuna textile was handsewn by artisan women of the Guna Dule community of Caimán Alto, Colombia. For generations, the artisan women have passed down an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form an intricate piece of art. Each fabric is the unique design of the artisan woman who carefully crafted it. In the Guna culture, beliefs and traditions can be found woven into each composition. Some depict stories, animals or daily scenes while others portray a more abstract design

Wicklewood X Mola Sasa is a collaboration which celebrates a kindred aesthetic - vivid colour, vibrant motifs, impeccable finishing and aligned philosophies - preserving artisan traditions, sourcing sustainable materials and working with local female artisans to empower women. This square cushion, crafted in an array of colourful Kuna fabrics, is handmade by the Guna Dule indigenous women and is inspired by a vintage Mola. The female artisans use an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form the intricate oval design.
All of the Kuna Textiles are made in Colombia in the Caiman Alto Reserve by Mola Sasa's artisan women partners of the Guna Dule community. For generations the artisan women have passed down an ancient appliqué technique of hand sewing cut-out layers of fabric to form an intricate piece of art. Each fabric is the specific design of the artisan woman who carefully works on it. The Guna culture, beliefs and traditions can be found woven into each composition. Some depict stories, animals or daily scenes while others offer a more abstract design. The Kuna Textiles are then brought to England where they are crafted into cushions. Each one is backed with Wicklewood’s namesake fabric and our signature contrasting trim is added to make each piece even more special and idiosyncratic.
Mola Sasa’s iconic textiles take on a new shape with these exclusive shirts made in collaboration with La Veste. Originally inspired by vintage school shirts, the collar and back flap details are handmade by the Guna Dule community of Caimán Alto with their unique reverse appliqué technique of hand sewing cut layers of fabric. The detailed textiles are originally used by the Guna Dule as apparel textiles worn as part of their traditional outfit. With this exclusive collaboration, we are helping to support, preserve and encourage the ancient Guna Dule’s artisanal traditions.
