Hi Orisleyla,

I received my order today and LOVE IT!

Thank you for your patience with me and thank you for my beautiful hair jewelry. I'm looking forward to wearing it and with many fond memoires of my vacation in Panama.

Sharing a Story

One more proud Panamenian how was in desparate need on a pollera for a school activity (mult-cultural week) my nine year old daughter is going to participate in. As we all now that trying to get a poller...a in three weeks is next to imposible, weather it's made her in the U.S. or come from Panama, furtunately, I was able to get in contact with a beutifull lady by the name of Orisleyla that worked with me in a tireying and exuasting effort to get me everthing that I need in a timely manor.

Doing this for a complete stranger, making phone calls to different vendors to get me the most competitive price, driving around not only to pick up the items but also mailing them out to me is an experience I will never forget. I will always be endated to her.

If it has anything to do with customs and traditions of Panama, polleras, montunos and to me the best part Pintao (hat worn with the muntuno) Orisleyla is the person you sould consider geting in touch with. I can't wait for the day of the event (Feb 29) to share my culture with the world. My mom always say that, if you do good, then good will follow you.
 
By the way you can get more information at panama-pollera.com, or panamafolkdress.com

After years of trying to procure my very own pollera, something that is treasured by us Panamanian women and handed down generations, I started to lose hope.  The customer service elsewhere was lacking or the prices were way too costly.  I happened upon PanamaFolkDress.com and could not believe my good fortune.  I emailed on Sunday my time, and on Monday morning I had a prompt response from Mrs. Orisleyla Delgado.  She was so patient with me and so kind.  Any question I had, she answered promptly.  

What's more, she really loves and believes in what she does.  She truly believes in upholding our culture.  That was important to me because it was not about a dollar to her. I commissioned two polleras.  She was able to have my very first pollera ready by the time I reached Panama in mid-October for a visit.  I contacted her in August!  Orisleyla and her husband came to the hotel, even though her back was hurting, and they gave me a hug as if I'd known them for years.  They made me feel so comfortable.  

Normally, I am very shy around strangers, but with her, my guard was down instantly.  She would ask after my children and my husband, and even my mother and grandfather.  She is such a warm and outgoing person and so professional.  Her husband as well!  She helped me figure out what jewelry to wear, when to wear it, what shoes, what other accessories, told me where to find them (and where NOT to find them), and helped me try on my pollera.  I felt as excited and glowing as I did on my wedding day.  

I never imagined I'd be able to replicate that feeling.  I wore it for the Panamanian Independence Day celebrations here in Tacoma and my pollera was the talk of the event!  People asked me who made it and told me I simply had to join the dance group to show it off.  My husband said I was glowing.  I felt like a queen.  

Orisleyla and PanamaFolkDress.com made my dream come true.  What's even more special, is thanks to her, I am able to pass down a piece of our culture to my daughter.  I consider Orisleyla to be like family and stay in contact with her just to say hello.  She is that awesome!  Never rude.  Always graceful.  Always kind.  I cannot thank PanamaFolkDress.com enough for making me feel so special.  I can't wait until I get my next one! :)
