My grandmother traveled from Guatemala to New York to visit my family in the United States and brought these rag dolls to remind us of our Guatemalan traditions and cultures so that no matter what country we are in, our homeland will always be in our hearts.Some people in my country sew their own clothes by hand because they are very poor and can not buy clothes but these clothes are part of our culture, the colors represent the country. My country: Guatemala is better known as  the country of eternal spring because it is never cold or not so hot and that was what my grandmother did not want us to forget.
