Malú Colorín is a Mexican natural dyer and designer living in West Wicklow, Ireland. She inherited her name and a calling for textile art from her mother and grandmother. With a background in graphic design and fine arts, in 2018 she began her experimentations and research into natural dyes. She has studied with master dyers in Mexico, Ireland, the US and Japan.
Her work draws inspiration from the traditional garments of her native Mexico, while embracing the rich heritage of Irish textiles. By working slowly and mindfully, she aims to build an intimate connection with each of her dye sources, as well as the land where they grow.
Malú is a founding member of Fibreshed Ireland.
Lobo is a Mexican husky that adopted Malú in 2019.
He likes to shred paper and fabrics to bits, making him the perfect composting ally. He fluctuates between taking long naps and vigorously reminding Malú to take a break from work because it's time to go for a walk.
