OUR MOLA BLOUSE ONLY COST $25 ( USD), AND THE WHOLE OUTFIT is $105 & 100% Authentic

The quality of a mola is determined by such factors as

-the number of layers
-fineness of the stitching
-evenness and width of cutouts
-addition of details such as zigzag borders, lattice-work or embroidery
-general artistic merit of the design and color combination.
