A few variations of the Panamanian traditional dress Pollera.

.

In Panama and Colombia, 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. Girls and women would generally own two polleras during their life: one before age 16 and one at adulthood. A single pollera can cost from several hundred to several thousands of dollars and take up to a year to create.
