I am so enthralled with these 'Divina' boots from the Australian-based Aware Network. They are uniquely crafted from recycled, patterned 'mola' textile art by Kuna Indian women indigenous to Colombia, South America.
Molas are hand-made using a reverse appliqué technique. Several layers (usually two to seven) of different-coloured cloth (usually cotton) are sewn together; the design is then formed by cutting parts of each layer away. The edges of the layers are then sewn down; the finest molas have extremely fine stitching, made using tiny needles.
