Details

In Guatemala, tiny dolls called quitapenas are given to children who are nervous or on edge, with the idea to have someone to tell their troubles to. This charming mobile includes a series of these small dolls in handwoven textiles, which also covers the rhomboid that the suspends the dolls and wood beads. The mobile itself is made by Elias Garcia, but it is his sister's family that makes the dolls.

"A heart of worry dolls!"

I have been a Hugh fan of worry dolls since childhood. This wreath is a great way to display and enjoy them! People ask about it often and many end up buying themselves - or to give as gifts.

"Love Love Love!"

I was first exposed to these dolls on a trip to Guatemala and have loved them ever since. I have always wished for an ornament that could be used year after year. These are perfect and will be cherished and passed down to our children
