Inspired by the traditional María dolls; these rag dolls originated in Michoacán and Estado de México. They were created by the Mazahua ethnic group, as a cheaper alternative and a more traditional approach to the toys being sold in the markets, (chiefly the porcelain dolls imported from Spain). Over time, these dolls began to characterise the Mazahua women who used to walk the streets of Mexico City and who were called "Marias".
