Decorative pillow case made by the Gunadule women from the Colombian Choco region. Among the Gunadule community, women are the primary producers of traditional crafts. These Molas are the result of long days of work and dedication. The designs symbolize indigenous cosmovision and traditions of family, healing and prosperity.
The designs are produced with a combination of reverse appliqué and appliqué. Two or more layers of different colors of cotton cloth are hand-sewn loosely together. The design and its details are cut through the top layer or layers to reach the color selected by the worker. Minute hand stitches attach each folded cut edge to a lower layer. Frequently small scraps of color are inserted beneath the top layer and worked in tas-tas, slits, to emphasize special details of background pattern. These designs are integrated to a pillow case to give the Mola a specific decorative purpose.
