“We are seekers of extraordinary crafts. We treasure imperfection and magic in color. We empower artisans and love what we do.“
Founded in 2015 by Yasmin Sabet, Mola Sasa was born out of a unique collaboration with the Kuna communities of Colombia. Both culturally and aesthetically rich, our iconic vibrant clutches rapidly caught the attention of the fashion industry scene. Yasmin, of Colombian-Egyptian descent with a background in architecture and furniture design, brings together collections that merge techniques, textures and materials evocative of a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary background.
