The Kuna Indian women of the San Blas Archipelago, a 140-mile group of islands off the Gulf Coast of Panama, have sewn and worn molas for a century or more. Mola, a Kuna word for blouse, also refers to the decorative panels that make up parts of the traditional blouse. Molas may be adorned with abstract or geometric shapes, plants and animals, representations of daily life, or, more recently, icons from outside cultures. This coloring book presents line drawings of mola designs traced from reproductions of the original textiles, which are shown on the inside covers in full color.
