Adorned with tiny quitapenas or 'worry dolls', this charming headband has its origin in Guatemalan legend. Traditionally worn to resolve one's problems and worries, the little dolls symbolize a mystic princess that received a gift from the sun god, that of the power to help people with their misfortune. The Lopez Garcia Family in Guatemala crafts the colorful headband, which is covered in hand-loomed cotton fabric.
