Mazatlan: Agustina Fernández for more than 40 years selling products made by hand

Their products range from bags, key rings, bracelets, and dolls, to embroidered masks; adapting to people’s needs and tastes

Since she was a child, she learned to make the famous embroidered LeLe dolls from Querétaro, where she is originally from, because her family did not have enough money to buy toys, they taught her how to make her own dolls.

She moved to Mazatlán hoping to sell the products she makes with her own hands because she talks that in her city there was a lot of lack and she needed to support her family.

Since then it is what she has dedicated herself to, embroidering and making various items that allowed her to support her children who are now independent thanks to the efforts of their mother, so now the earnings are to pay for their own expenses and not depend on her children until she can’t work, she says.

Their products range from bags, key rings, bracelets, and dolls, to embroidered masks; adapting to the needs and tastes of people.

Sadly, in recent years their sales have been low, especially now with the pandemic, reaching one, two, or three dolls a day.

Her message is to support artisans like her by buying the items that they make themselves because behind each product there is a lot of time and effort invested.

Buying local is directly supporting these people who have a family to feed in addition to themselves.

She is located outside the Señor Frogs downtown, in front of the Panama restaurant one block from the Pino Suárez market.
