Details

Adorned with tiny quitapenas or "worry dolls", this charming headband has its origin in Guatemalan legend. Traditionally worn to resolve one's problems and worries, the little dolls symbolize a mystic princess that received a gift from the sun god, that of the power to help people with their misfortune. The Lopez Garcia Family in Guatemala crafts the colorful headband, which is covered in hand-loomed cotton fabric.

"Offering a little hope"

I love these little worry dolls and jumped at the chance to buy a bag of 100. The tradition is for one doll to handle one worry, but I use them slightly differently in my mental health advocacy. I give one to anyone who is worrying about something...or many things.. and say to place the doll under their pillow at night so the worry doll can help find a solution. It is amazing how much a little hope can help.

"Christmas gift for seven year old granddaughter"

My seven year old granddaughter loves little figures and these delighted her. I gave them to her a few days before Christmas so she could hang them on the tree if she wanted and she yelled Best present ever!
