Dear Customer,
Panama is in total lockdown. No tourists, no sales, no food, no medicine. That is what is happening to the Kuna, Wounaan and Embera tribes in Panama. We have worked with them since 1990 and know they are desperate. Traderbrock, Molamagic and Molamadness will match all sales revenue and use it to purchase molas, tagua carvings and baskets for the next 60 days. We have church pastors and others that sell regularly to us via photos and payment through Western Union. The art is shipped through the mail. We have been doing this for years but now it is critical to help the poorest of the poor. Please share this message with your friends.

Estimado cliente,
Panamá está en un encierro total. Sin turistas, sin ventas, sin comida, sin medicinas. Eso es lo que les está pasando a las tribus Kuna, Woumaan y Embera en Panamá. Hemos trabajado con ellos desde 1990 y sabemos que están desesperados. Traderbrock, Molamagic y Molamadness igualarán todos los ingresos de ventas y lo utilizarán para comprar molas, tallas de tagua y cestas durante los próximos 60 días. Tenemos pastores de iglesias y otros que nos venden regularmente a través de fotos y pagos a través de Western Union. El arte se envía por correo. Hemos estado haciendo esto durante años, pero ahora es fundamental ayudar a los más pobres de los pobres. Por favor, comparta este mensaje con sus amigos.
Traderbrock Kuna Tribe Vintage Mola-Panama 3.45844

Kuna Indian Machine-Stitch Vintage Mola-Panama 20091506L

$ 12.99

This mola measures 16" x 11".

Folks, we are talking DEAL here!!! There’s a good chance this gem is older than you. It is an old blouse mola that has been removed. It is machine-stitched which dates it. It is rumored that back in the sixties some well-intentioned Peace Corps volunteers introduced sewing machines to the Islands to help the ladies. Well, you know where that went with those of you that are hard-core fans of hand-stitching. The Kuna artists quickly went back to the old ways but a few of these Singer Molas are still around. However, they are becoming fewer and fewer, and you know what that means. Scarcity breeds desire that breeds higher prices. But relax, I’m not going to hold out for the big bucks. I’m too old. I’m going to let you wait around for the Mola rally. I’m going to spend my meager proceeds on another trip to Paradise where I can buy some more molamagic. So git to biddin’ so I can git to packin’!!!

While there are two photos this is one mola.

Every mola is a one-of-a-kind treasure.

Shipping is included within the USA.
