A postcard from Panama

A pollera is a Spanish term for a big one-piece skirt used mostly in traditional festivities and folklore throughout Spanish-speaking Latin America. In Panama, handmade polleras are worn during festivals or celebrations. Currently it is the National Costume of Panama. They are mainly made of cotton and wool, and you will usually see colorful flowers as designs on the pollera, although they do have a dominant white color.

Thank you very much, Blanca!
