MOLA BAGS & Accessories are unique leather bags and articles featuring a hand-made textile art decoration known as MOLA. This ornament is made by women from the Kuna / Guna indigenous community, located in Panama and Colombia.
Our collection has a wide range of leather articles with this beautiful ethnic textile art. Every Mola accessory has a different design, which makes every item really UNIQUE and original.
Leather articles, such as bags, wallets, belts and other accessories are available on the market in countless numbers, forms, shapes, and sizes. However, Mola Bags & Accessories can offer much more than a just high-quality product – we combine it with handmade, unique textile Mola decorations.
These decorations represent souls of indigenous Kuna women, which have been using this traditional art for centuries to express their feelings and emotions. This is a marvelous handicraft, full of life, originality in motives, shapes, and colors, being each of them a one of a kind! Promotion of Kuna culture also allows this community to maintain their unique world in its current shape.

Handmade with Love in Colombia
Our products are re-designed in Hamburg and then carefully handmade by small craft family workshops in Bogotá, Colombia using always high-quality cow-hide leather.
Molas are purchased and fair trade directly from the Kuna community taking into account that Molas are one of their most important source of income.
Every bag and article represents an integral work between the Kuna Community and our colombian artisans, who keep alive our culture and tradition and at the same time play an important role in Colombian's economy.
