Made in Casco: Unique Gifts

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

If you are looking for a unique gift to take home, something Panamanian but sophisticated, that was not only made in Casco but helps directly communities improve their quality of life you have two beautiful choices: Papiro y Yo and Karavan.

Papiro y Yo works mainly with communities in the interior, towards Penonomé and what we call the “dry arch”.  Karavan works with the indigenous communities and with the African descendants that live in Portobelo. Between the two you cover a big part of Panama`s cultural rainbow!

While part of their production is at those communities, they also produce “in house”. Here is the info on each one:

Papiro y Yo: located at 4th Street, betwen Central Avenue and B Avenue, entering by Casa Góngora or if you are at Plaza Bolivar entering by Casablanca.  Here is their FACEBOOK page.
