Let your worries dissolve away as you sleep soundly and purr like a kitten with our traditional Guatemalan "worry dolls," made in the image of cats. A lovely way to help ease someone's mind in trouble.

According to the Mayan people of Guatemala, cats are thought to protect the souls of people on their journey to the underworld. They also have the tradition to share their worries with the worry people and place them under their pillows at bedtime. During the night the worry people will whisk all your cares away, and you will wake up carefree – all your worries gone!

Dolls vary in color and design; please let us choose for you. Handmade in and fairly traded from Guatemala.

  • Cotton
  • Dolls come with traditional textile bag & story card
  • 3" T x 2" W (7.6 x 5.1 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Guatemala

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.
