TUTI means "little sister" in Totonaca language, it's a brand of handmade dolls which are made of high quality materials. Fernanda Limón and Ernesto Olivera, both graphic designers, decided to venture with their experience and desires to embark on this new path.

TUTI significa “hermana menor” en totonaca, es una marca de muñecas artesanales las cuales están elaboradas de materiales de alta calidad. Fernanda Limón y Ernesto Olivera, ambos diseñadores gráficos, decidieron aventurarse con su experiencia y deseos a emprender este nuevo camino.

The details with which they are made, make them unique and special. Each of the dolls is made with the heart of the artisans who contribute to the creation of each little sister.

Los detalles con los que se elaboran, las hacen únicas y especiales. Cada una de las muñecas está realizada con el corazón de cada uno de los artesanos que contribuyen a la creación de cada hermanita.

Since being a teenager, Fernanda, born in Mexico City, has had a special taste for handicrafts and rag dolls which led her to create her first dolls.

Desde que era adolescente, Fernanda, nacida en la Ciudad de México, ha tenido un gusto especial por la artesanía y las muñecas de trapo lo que la llevó a crear sus primeras muñecas.

In 2015, newlyweds, Fernanda and Ernesto take the initiative to create a company that rescues and promotes values in society.

En 2015, recién casados, Fernanda y Ernesto toman la iniciativa de crear una empresa que rescatara e impulsara valores en la sociedad. 

The dolls are marked by our culture, this makes each carry a meaning of the customs and traditions that represent and characterize us.

Las muñecas están marcadas por nuestra cultura, esto hace que cada una lleve un significado de las costumbres y tradiciones que nos representan y caracterizan.

Tuti is not only a rag doll, but her essence focuses on the affection, tenderness, care, and love you can give to a younger sister.

Tuti no solamente es una muñeca de trapo, sino su esencia se centra en el cariño, ternura, cuidados, y amor que le puedes brindar a una hermana menor. 

That is why the person who acquires a Tuti is given an adoption certificate, where it is given a name and you can place some experience that reminds you of your younger sister.

Es por ello quien adquiere una Tuti se le brinda un certificado de adopción, en donde se le da un nombre y se puede colocar alguna experiencia que te haga recordar a tu hermana menor.
