These rag dolls, known as “María”, originate from the state of Michoacán and Estado de México and developed by the Mazahua and Otomi community as a more economical and traditional alternative to toys sold in markets, mainly porcelain dolls imported from Spain. Over time, these dolls began to represent the Mazahua women who used to walk the streets of Mexico City and called “Marías”. It is even said that this is the reason why the dolls, with ribbons of colors and typical costumes of the region, have earned the name of “María dolls”.
Obtained thanks to Wirikuta, México.
