Mola Sasa x La Veste jackets are handmade between Colombia and Spain in collaboration with the Guna Dule community of Caiman Alto.
Originally inspired by a vintage quilted patchwork jacket, each style has a total of 112 squares of hand sewn fabrics that were carefully combined to create something different and out of this world. The Kuna textiles, commonly known as “molas,” translate to “clothes” in the Guna Dule’s language, and are originally apparel textiles that are still worn by the artisan women of the community as part of their traditional blouse. With this exclusive collaboration we are helping support, preserve and encourage the ancient Guna Dule’s artisanal traditions.
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
