I feel like most things I discover now are through Facebook, and this is no exception. I was browsing through my feed and came across a new clothing company in Panama called Soul of the Americas.  It grabbed my attention because they incorporate mola patterns made by the Guna Indians from San Blas, Panama. I browsed through some of the different clothing they offered and the $20 pocket tank top caught my eye. It looked like it would be really good to wear for the next pool party or electronic concert I go to.

I sent a message to their Facebook page asking how I could purchase one.  They said I can choose the color of the tank top and mola pattern.  I wasn’t feeling very creative at the time so I told them to use the same colors from the one in the photo.

They had a lot of orders in front of mine so it took about two weeks for my shirt to be ready.  I just picked it up today and I am really happy with how it turned out and I definitely want to get a few more things from them in the future.

Besides tank tops, Soul of the Americas also sells bathing suits, shirts, shorts, hats and more.  Be sure to check out their Facebook page and website to see what all they offer.


I'm from Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Panama in 2011 to finish a degree in International Business. I enjoyed the hot tropical weather and the lifestyle on offer in Panama City so much that I decided to make it my permanent residence.
