ARTISAN TECHNIQUES

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.
