Item details

Handmade

You are purchasing a single doll made by Zulma (a member of the OAWAAPI team). These dolls are perfect to add to hair bows, girls purses, boys satchels, or any other item that needs an adornment for a worry wart!


"WORRY DOLL LEGEND - There is a legend among the Highland Indian villages of Guatemala: "If you have a problem, then share it with a worry doll. Before going to bed, tell one worry to each doll, then place them beneath your pillow. Whilst you sleep, the dolls will take your worries away!"

You are purchasing a single large doll made by Zulma!

Zulma was a single mother most of her adult life. Her husband left her and their five children when she was pregnant with the last child. Zulma raised her children cleaning houses and sewing clothing for wealthy city goers and tourists. Thinking that all her children were out of the house and could take care of her one of her children died leaving her four grandchildren orphaned. Zulma did not want to see her grandchildren grown up in the hands of someone she did not know. Zulma who is over sixty (exact age is not known) took on the care of her grandchildren.

Zulma makes her worry dolls from scraps of material, wood and thread. Her hope is that anyone who has a worry can find peace as she did. Zulma is teaching her grandchildren to make worry dolls also. Each piece is different and no two dolls are the same.

Your purchase supports Zulma and OAWAAPI projects and journeys! We thank you for your considerations!
