Malú Colorín is a Mexican natural dyer and designer living in West Wicklow, Ireland. She is the founder & CEO of Talú, a natural dye house and educational hub that helps slow fashion lovers keep their clothes in play for longer & reconnect to the Land. She is also a founding member of Fibreshed Ireland.
Malú 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.
