This cute headband is adorned with handmade worry dolls from Guatemala. Worry dolls come from a Guatemalan legend, where if children tell one worry to each doll and place them under their pillow when they go to bed at night, the dolls will have taken their worries away by the morning. The headband and worry dolls are handcrafted using scrap textiles from other products made by artisans at UPAVIM, our fair trade partner in Guatemala.
This headband comes in assorted colours and it will be luck of the draw as to which colour you will receive.
UPAVIM is a cooperative of women who are turning around the lives of their families and their communities. Establishing a successful business in the community, generating good quality education for children and role models for the next generation, the women of UPAVIM have used the production of handicrafts to overcome the pressures of living in migrant settlement villages in Guatemala City.Read more
