Details

This colorful and festive garland is made by the Lopez Garcia Family in Guatemala who specialize in quitapenas, or traditional worry dolls. "The idea is to trust each doll with whatever troubles you. It is said that during the night, while we sleep, the dolls will whisper the solution to our troubles," says Ana from the Lopez Garcia Family. The garland is a cheerful accent for your home or Christmas tree.

Legend has it that the Maya Sun God gave princess Ixmucané the gift of solving people's problems. With time people started making dolls in Ixmucané's honor and they would tell her their woes, hoping she would solve them through the dolls.

"Family Tradition"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A tradition that began with my Grandmother. Her church supported these missions, and she passed the significance of the Worry Doll message to me: Place a Worry Doll under your pillow when you go to bed at night and give her your worries!. Now, my granddaughters are receiving Worry Dolls, and I share the legend with them. Barbara

"Colorful and cute little coin purse"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This little coin purse is such a clever small gift. It is very well made. I love the Worry Doll on it and the woven cloth shaped like a flower behind her. The doll is the largest and best looking worry doll I have ever seen.
