According to legend, the Mayan princess Ixmucane received the ability to solve the worries of her people from the god of the sun. In keeping with that tradition, these quitapenas, or "worry dolls" from Guatemala are offered by the Lopez Garcia Family. Working with cotton on the traditional floor loom, the talented artisans hand-weave the colorful dresses of 100 distinct worry dolls. This awe-inspiring set arrives within a handy cotton storage pouch.
