INTRODUCTION Mola Sasa is a collaboration between designers Yasmin Sabet and Ines Sainz, and the Kuna indigenous communities of Colombia and Panama. Sabet who is of Colombian-Egyptian origin began as an architect and furniture designer while Sainz, of Spanish origin, has a background in jewelry design. Both culturally and aesthically rich, each Mola draws from symbols of the Kuna’s beliefs and traditions. Some tell a story and depict animals, people or situations, and others are abstract designs. As they are handmade, no bag will ever be exactly the same; each fabric is individually hand crafted by a Kuna woman. We treasure their imperfections as they give your bag its unique quality.

MOLA SEWN ON SHIRT

tradition Molas are traditional apparel fabrics made by the Kuna women. Different fabrics are intricately cut into shapes and then layered to create vibrant geometric or figurative designs. The more layers in a design, the more fine the Mola.


YUTE FIBER

+


what’s inside? Each Mola Sasa bag is lined with a natural yute fiber interior.


SPRING | SUMMER 2016 COLLECTION The 2016 Spring Summer Collection brings to life the art of Molas. Each fabric has been delicately hand crafted. Vibrant patterns and colors combine to create new and exciting bags that are original and sophisticated. A statement in themselves, they are a definitive piece for the season.

alto cayman, colombia Our bags are hand-crafted using the finest Molas sourced from a cooperative of 60 women located in the Alto Cayman province in the northern borders of Colombia and Panama. Each fabric is the particular design of the artisan woman who carefully works on it. The Women use the Molas to decorate their shirts. They place one in front and one in the back of the shirt, usually matching. They are an art in itself; each Mola is a representation of the Kuna culture, their beliefs and traditions. Some tell a story and depict animals, people or situations, and others are abstract designs. Each bag helps support, preserve and encourage Colombian artisanal traditions.
