The bright colors and intricate designs of Panamanian textiles pulse with energy and life. A mola, worked in reverse appliqué, is a fabric panel for a traditional blouse worn by the Kuna women of Panama’s San Blas Islands. Before the arrival of Spanish missionaries, Kuna women painted similarly colorful designs directly on their body. Today the mola remains an important icon of Kuna culture.

Just the right amount of challenge.
Cleverly designed. Patterns come together more easily than it lo
Just got finished with it. The colors are bright and pleasing. The patterns are subtly changing so you don't get stuck trying to figure out which part of the puzzle a piece fits in. I liked it.
This 300-piece puzzle was hard but that's what I wanted, something that would take a little longer. It was satisfying when completed.
So colorful & interesting! Hard enough to be challenging but not so hard that it frustrated me.
This is one of my favorite puzzles. It's so much fun to put together. I like to do puzzles multiple times. The pieces are sturdy and varied, the colors are wonderful, and I love the image. This is a good brand and almost everything they make is nice. Love this one!
So excited to see this design... traveled extensively in Panama & islands w/ the Cuna Indians in the 60's & 70's ... so very excited to have a 'mola' design! Thank you!!!
Such a beautiful, beautiful design! Sturdy pieces. I love it!
Fascinating image. Wonderful finger-feel of pieces.
I am from Panama so I was attracted to this puzzle the minute I saw it we framed it and it is even prettier.
I have not yet put Mola Design together yet but I know it will be fun and challenging. No kidding, I have bought over 30 of Pomegranate puzzles and really love putting them together. I love Pomegranate puzzles. They are beautiful, well made with sturdy construction, come in 300, 500 and 1000 pieces. I really enjoy putting them together. I feel I will probably put them together a few times and then pass them on to friends.
Mola designs are just the best for making challenging and colorful designs. Again, I wish I hadn't given this one away after completing.
