Between Rags and Dolls


Brenda Torres Figueroa’s Between Rags and Dolls have been dedicated to the creation of custom garments and dolls for more than 10 years. Graduated with a Masters in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2004, Torres Figueroa has expanded her passion with dolls with the techniques taught by her mother a master artisan and doll maker from Puerto Rico, the memory of her first rag doll made by her “bisabuela” at the age of four, and the sight of her first born and her longing to create her something special that spoke of all the women in her family.

Every single one of Between Rags & Dolls creations is custom to the occasion, even if is to celebrate a milestone, birthday, or even to commemorate the life of a passed loved one. Brenda has been a teaching artist at Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School Puerto Rican High School since 2008.
