Kuna Mola on Pitahaya Bikini - Blueberry/Large
Designer Chechy Benedetti partners with women of the Ole-Tule Kuna tribe of Necocli, Colombia, incorporating their authentic mola appliqués into her own swimwear designs. Indigenous artisans in the cooperative, led by Jovita Gonzalez, create each cotton piece in an intensive process of fine cutting and hand-stitching. Molas can intricately depict native flowers, sea animals or legendary symbols from Kuna mythology and culture. This signature craft is prized by museums and textile collectors worldwide. With this bikini, you get to wear a piece of art and celebrate a tradition rooted in the magical rainforests of the Caribbean. Same-day shipping.
