Worry Dolls

These ethical gifts from Guatemala - including dolls, pouches, notebooks and kits - are based around the concept of Worry People, a deep-founded tradition in Mayan culture.  There is a legend that when the Mayan people have worries, they tell them to their worry dolls.  They tuck the dolls under their pillows at night and in the morning, the worry people will have taken all their worries away!  Our suppliers are long established handicraft businesses.  They provide valued permanent employment and also employ hundreds of homeworkers, who work in their spare time to make the handicrafts as a useful addition to agricultural income. The businesses also support several social projects.
