Details

These adorable dolls are here to bring some love into your home. Elias Garcia arranges them in two interlocking heart-shaped wreaths covered with colorful handloomed fabric and finished with a wooden plaque reading "Connected Heart to Heart." Each doll is handmade by Elias' sister, Aura, and she dresses each one in a unique handwoven dress.

Quitapenas or "worry dolls" represent Ixmucane, a princess who was gifted with infinite wisdom. Children are instructed to confide all of their worries to their quitapenas and then place them underneath their pillow at night. The dolls will impart their wisdom to them while they sleep and in the morning they'll wake up knowing what to do.

"My favorite gift for both family and friends"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I LOVE Worry Dolls! They are part of my history with my grandmother. Her church supported some of the missions where the Worry Dolls were made. Occasionally, there would be a Fiesta with dancing from Native Countries and a Special Market. She was able to buy Worry Dolls then. The message of Give your worries to God, He will be up all night anyway! is inherent in the message of the Worry Dolls: This wreath looks beautiful anywhere!

My granddaughter loved this heart wreath. I gave it to her during the pandemic at Valentines Day. It was wrapped beautifully and came with an extra worry doll on the bow on the package. This piece is exquisite and now adorns the wall in my granddaughters bedroom year round.

Best Uses

  • It is great to add a splash of color & "unusual" to any decor

"Will cherish always!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This arrived packaged securely and carefully in eco-friendly paper, and had the nicest postcard and message to me handwritten! As a child, my parents would bring me back worry dolls from Central America and taught me to tell them my worries and put them under my pillow at night. Finding this product was beyond incredible/symbolic and I still believe in the worry doll magic (legit or not.) This is GORGEOUS front and Back! An absolute gem!
