an interesting site to check out www.textilemuseum.ca

I was interested in an article on the Kuna people in the Panama area... their blouse were actually banned by the gov. in the early 1920's.

Mola means “blouse” in the Kuna language. Molas are hand-sewn using a reverse-appliqué technique and used as decorative blouse panels. The designs are created by cutting through several layers of cloth to expose the various bright colours beneath. Mola imagery is inspired by traditional Kuna symbols and stories, and by imported popular culture through books and advertisements.

I have done this type of applique on a pillow at the lake... it has a big fish on it.. was fun and easy...

I saw those Molas on a travel show but they get enough into the history and making of them. Thanks for the link, should be interesting reading.
