"WORRY DOLL LEGEND - There is a legend amongst 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!" Maya Traditions is a
fair-trade producer and wholesale business based in Lake Atitlan,
Guatemala and San Francisco, California. For over ten years they
have worked with Maya indigenous weavers in the highlands of
Guatemala. Their mission is to support weaving groups and small
family businesses through providing consistent income, as well as
health and education projects.
