What is “Ikuna”?

IKUNA’s name is rooted in indigenous symbols of success and creativity.

It comes from the Kuna people, an ancient tribe whose home is nestled in the rain forest of the Panama-Colombia border. Their culture is characterized by its social customs, strong political organization, and the traditional clothing its people wear, known as Mola. The Mola is a cotton fabric made of patterns that decorate shirts, skirts, boots and bags. The Mola is characterized for its rich and vibrant designs that reflect daily life, history and rich imagination of the Kuna.

Simultaneously, in the Pacific island of Tonga, “ikuna” is an aboriginal word used in religious or spiritual ceremonies. It means triumph or victory.
