Details

Guatemala's Lopez Garcia Family creates this delightful embellished table runner that is sure to be a conversation starter. The ivory cotton runner is embellished at both ends with quitapenas, or Guatemalan "worry dolls". According to legend, the princess Ixmucané was granted the ability to solve people's problems by the Sun God. Over time, people began to make tiny dolls in remembrance of Ixmucané. They would tell the dolls their problems in the hopes that Ixmucané would solve them. The custom became very popular, and continues to this day. The charming table runner is completed by ivory tassels at both ends.

"Colorful and cute little coin purse"

This little coin purse is such a clever small gift. It is very well made. I love the Worry Doll on it and the woven cloth shaped like a flower behind her. The doll is the largest and best looking worry doll I have ever seen.

I absolutely adore this and the price seems incredibly low considering how beautifully high quality it is! This amazingly lovely little purse lives in my bag daily and the gift wrapping included a fabulous extra worry doll which I also utilize. Thanks to Novica and thank you so very much to the Lopez Garcia Family for making this incredible piece!!

Never heard of worry dolls until my granddaughter told me about them. She wanted them for Christmas. I was amazed at the detail. She loves them. I just hope she doesn t have that many worries that she uses them all up! Beautiful craftsmanship

"My first NOVICA order but not my last!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Worry dolls get an upgrade! Here they are a little larger than they ones I remember having in my youth, but they are perfect ornament size which is for what these are intended. They have cute, sparkly glitter foam wings in an array of colors. Oh, theyre so darling and JUST the thing these days to take your worries away for you on a 2021 Christmas tree. Beautifully made in a colorful guatemalan cotton print drawstring bag for storage. Just a great little set! Thank you.
