Artesano Inspirations, a social enterprise, aimed at aiding in poverty alleviation in Colombia, presents this beautiful artisan-made leather handbag constructed with hand-stitched Mola made by the Kuna People of Colombia. Because of the Mola fabrics uniqueness, you probably will not find another one like it.
Molas are hand-made using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers (usually two to seven) of different-colored cloth (usually cotton) are sewn together; the design is then formed by cutting away parts of each layer. The edges of the layers are then turned under and sewn down. Often, the stitches are nearly invisible. This is achieved by using a thread the same color as the layer being sewn, sewing blind stitches, and sewing tiny stitches. The finest molas have extremely fine stitching, made using tiny needles. All proceeds (100%) go to help support Revealing Hope Ministries. Your purchase will be processed through Aroma of Hope Coffee Co.
