Details

Traditional Guatemalan worry dolls share the love as festive ornaments by the Lopez Garcia Family. Each doll in the set of six is crafted by hand and wears a handwoven skirt and headdress. "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 set of six arrives in a hand-loomed cotton pouch.

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.

Please expect slight variations in color and size as each doll is crafted by hand with available materials, making each one unique.

"Excellent and adorable!"

I love these worry dolls. There were an excellent value and I am giving (some of them) as gifts to my closest friends during this horrendous virus pandemic. Definitely recommend them. They are quality and beautiful!

"Very sweet dolls"

Bought these doll mothers with children to give to a neighbor. She had once said she loved the little doll used as a package decoration that came with Novica wrapping. We both had our first children at the same time. They are now adults. So this set appealed to me as a gift related to our friendship. Very colorful and sweet. Thank you.
