MACROFEST - Annie Chajin - Panama - DAY 2

20130318-121542.jpg Annie Chajin is charismatic and dynamic. She has done much to give the traditional Kuna (an indigenous group in Panama) mola (textile art) an up-to-date twist. Whether it is hats, accessories, or clothing, her language is 'popular and accessible'.

New to this season's collection is a variety of striped skirts in a variety of lengths, with or without mola adorned pockets.

A recycling enthusiast, Annie's bracelets and neckpieces utilise the left over materials from her clothing and the current collection of accessories remains a sell out at Felix B Maduro, Panama's top department store.
