There is a Mayan legend that states…
“When a person can not sleep well due to worries, they tell the worries to a worry doll. They then put the doll under their pillow and during the night the worry doll worries in the persons place, allowing them to sleep well and awake refreshed”.
These 5 cm long dolls have been made by different artisans, so they differ one from the other making them unique.
Our range of worry dolls from Guatemala that are featured on this site are all produced by co-operatives from various villages.
For the most part the production of these items is undertaken by women’s groups and co-operatives to raise funds for their villages. The money earned provides much needed funds for basic necessities and small scale infrastructure projects within their communities.
All goods are ethically produced. All artisans and workers involved in every steps of the production are fairly compensated for their skills and work.
