What is Mola? / ¿Que es Mola?

Mola is a fabric made from layers of material that are sewn together to create beautiful, colorful designs. It is handmade in Colombia by the natives, called Indigenas Cuna, located mainly in Chocó, a region in Western Colombia on the Pacific Ocean. Julieta Monroy, the creator and designer of this small company, uses this unique material to add bold colors to the shoes she and her team make by hand. Since Mola is made in small, individual pieces, each pair of shoes that includes the fabric is a unique, one-of-a-kind piece.
