Knitting With Luz
I am introducing to you my new collection of Mexican native girl dolls. I am using the technique of the amigurumi, which comes from the Japanese meaning "doll" or handcrafted dolls.
Since I am Mexican I am very familiar with the long tradition of making dolls in many forms and with different materials. It is a centuries-old tradition on the different Mexican Natives to create dolls and figurines, from clay, ceramics, rags and ribbons, corn husks and corn hair and almost any material they get their hands-on.
If you travel through Mexico, you will be impressed by the amount and variety of dolls you can find. You will find the "Marias" on the central part of Mexico from the Mazahuas, There is the "Lolitas" from Puebla and Zacatecas, and many many more.
I just hope you like my dolls, they are created with lots of love and the best materials I could find. The bodies are created using 100% cotton yarn and are filled with hypoallergenic polyester fiber. It can be washed by hand. To check my collection,
