Banner Good Karma Blog


In today's fast-paced world, where stress and anxiety often overshadow moments of peace and tranquility, the ancient Guatemalan tradition of worry dolls stands as a beacon of hope and comfort. At Lumily, we cherish this timeless tradition, offering a collection of worry dolls that are more than mere ornaments; they are tiny guardians of peace, handcrafted with love and care.

The Enchanting Tale of Guatemalan Worry Dolls

According to Guatemalan legend, worry dolls, known locally as "Muñecas quitapenas," are magical entities. Whisper your worries to these tiny dolls, and place them under your pillow at night. By dawn, the dolls are said to gift you with wisdom and courage to overcome your troubles, carrying away your anxieties in their miniature embrace.
