"Fabric on fabric embroidery" represents an intricate technique where layers of fabric are delicately embroidered upon one another, resulting in a multidimensional and visually captivating effect. This method is a hallmark of the Kuna people, an aborigine community inhabiting the region between Panama and Colombia. Their mastery of this art form goes beyond simple stitching; it involves an artistic dance of layering, weaving, and embellishing, giving birth to vibrant and textured textiles that are more akin to living expressions of culture and heritage.
