The Dolls

Mis Reinas are handmade from the first stitch of the doll’s body to the last details of the ribbon sewn into each Jalisco dress. The doll’s facial features are all embroidered by hand. I am excited to offer dresses in a variety of colors, red, green, yellow, purple, blue and light green. Skin tones are available in both dark brown and tan shades.

The Beginnings

The concept of Mis Reinas was born in the city of Montebello. What began as a homemade gift for my daughter has expanded to a rare collection of dolls enjoyed by family and friends. Mis Reinas are original, artistic dolls made in the image of Jalisco dancers. They are created as a tribute to my daughters who danced Folklorico and to my mother who called my sisters and I, Reina.

The Family

My parents, Juan and Victoria Zavala, originally from Irapuato, Guanajuato and Los Angeles are the loving parents of 14 children. Nine boys and five girls carry on my families’ creative genes including chefs, artists, musicians and now doll makers. As the 5th of the 14 children, I grew up in East Los Angeles. As an adult I married and had 3 children of my own.

The Details

The dolls measure 20 inches in height and are great for young children and collectors alike. Each doll is unique and custom orders are also available and take approximately two to three weeks to create. See etsy shop for further details or contact us below!
