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.
