Molas

The Costume worn by the Kuna woman consists of a multicolor blouse, that has the generic name of “Mola”, it is made by hand by the Indians, with attractive decorative motifs of biologic character, geometric design, mythological beings and scenes from daily life. They also wear a skirt that is made from about three yards of fabric tied at their waist. Under this one, wrapped around waist, is a smaller skirt that they use as underwear. A colorful scarf decorates the garment and is placed on the head whenever they go out of the house.

“the best container available, glass.”

These are links that take you to some Dairy Farms that currently use glass as the material for their milk bottles. Shatto Milk Company, published this statement at the die line blog (http://www.thedieline.com/blog/2008/05/shatto-milk-com.html) about why they still use glass.
“We at Shatto Milk Company have decided to provide our milk in glass bottles. The reasons for this decision are very simple. First, the glass bottle tends to keep milk colder, and colder milk is more desirable. Second, glass bottles are environmentally friendly. Our glass bottles can be washed and reused as many times as they are returned. Thus, recycling and reusing our bottles lowers the amount of material dumped in area landfills on a daily basis. Third, unlike paper cartons or plastic, glass imparts no foreign odor or flavor. Fourth, glass bottles are most notable in history for containing farm fresh milk from the local family farm, and that is exactly what you are getting from us. Let there be no doubt – our product is different – it is handled with the utmost care and packaged in the best container available, glass.”
