Sofia Zakia IQ Worry Doll w/ 16" chain



Sofia Zakia - "When I was a child, as children do, I worried. Minute details scurried in my mind, and relentless worries ensued.

In today's rapid world, our daily rythme brings an influx of little worries to deal with; what better way to exorcise these worries than by adding a beautiful talisman to your everyday ritual?

In Guatemala, Worry Dolls are a cultural tradition that help people sleep peacefully. Legend has it that when worrying keeps one awake, simply whisper your worries to your dolls and they will whisk them away!

Enchanted by the idea of these sweet tiny objects, I have created worry dolls to manage and keep your distress away.

Iq, named after the Mayan spirit of the air, features an embroidered wrap and a diamond on their forehead just under a little scarf. Iq embodies happiness and bliss. Wear themdiligently around your neck, and in beauty, theywill symbolically bring positive rapturousenergy.

5% of all Worry Doll proceeds will be donated to Mayan Families, a nonprofit organization aimed at providing education, nutrition, shelter and medical care to those living in extreme poverty inruralGuatemala.
