Sleep soundly and purr like a kitten with traditional Guatemalan worry dolls made in the image of cats. Let your worries melt away, or give the gift of worry-free sleep to someone else -- with timeless wisdom from the Mayan people of Guatemala!

According to the Mayans, cats are thought to protect the souls of people on their journey to the underworld. The Mayans also have a tradition to share their worries with the worry people, which they place under their pillow at bedtime. It is thought that during the night the worry people will whisk all your cares away and you will wake up carefree -- all your worries gone!

Each traditional textile bag comes with a set of six dolls. Bag measures 3" T x 2" W (7.6 x 5.1 cm), and each doll is about 1" T (2.5 cm). Dolls vary in color and design. Handmade in and fairly traded from Guatemala.

June 28, 2014 - lovely items all come complete in their own little bag. hand made too so enviromentally friendly product as well. will be giving as part of a gift to a depressed friend.

March 30, 2014 - I have purchase these kitties for myself, sisters and cat loving friends!!! They make perfect stocking stuffers and just a nice little treat for "just because." Everyone loved them! When my sister in law opened hers and shook the kitties out her kitty Peaches ran up and stole one of the kitties and ran off with it!! Maybe she was worried about something! Love them, and will purchase more in the future!!

January 19, 2014 - I like these cats, not used by me for worry no more. I like the way they were made, different colors of thread. Very eye catching!!

January 18, 2014 - Beautifully made, whimsical, and exquisitely detailed. I love the fact that it is handmade and fairly purchased and supports local artisans, a win-win situation. My family adores gifts from this site.

Artisan: Doña Jerónima Juárez

Artisan Doña Jerónima Juárez

Doña Jerónima Juárez was born in the small village of San Pedro Las Huertas, near Antigua, Guatemala. She stopped attending school after the third grade in order to supplement her family's income by helping her mother sell vegetables in the marketplace.

Doña Jerónima's mother taught her to make worry dolls, a traditional craft in Guatemala. She recalls, "I was trying for 2 months to make the worry dolls; I made one but was not good enough then I undid the dolls and tried again and again and again lots of times."

Her perseverance paid off. Eleven years ago, she was able to found a small workshop, "Artesanias Multicolor," in the Colonial City of La Antigua Guatemala. She is able to employ fifteen artisans in the production of traditional and not-so-traditional handicrafts, including the "Worry Cats," a design she developed exclusively for the Greater Good Network.

With their livelihood no longer tied solely to the agricultural harvest, Doña Jerónima, her mother, and her three daughters continue to turn their traditional crafting skills towards the creation of new and unique designs.
