“The Kuna’s eye for vibrant color, design and their mastery of the reverse applique technique is the central element of these Kicks. The fusion of the Kuna’s mola art form with artisan shoe-making makes for a unique expression of their cultural folklore regarding the universe, nature, and their community. The Colombian shoemakers use their 150 years of heritage to handcraft each pair. Each mola is the result of multiple layers of fabric which are cut and stitched by hand, revealing the artist’s vision. Our Kicks are carefully crafted, designed and produced in small batches, reflecting each artist’s commitment to both quality and beauty.”
The fact the purchase of these shoes are providing local artisans with living wages and helping their communities is awesome.
