I’m Laura, a nurse and a mammy of two beautiful boys, and I’m lucky enough to call the Great Sugarloaf in Wicklow my home.
I love growing plants more than anything, and over the past few years have learned how to incorporate both local and cultivated plants and herbs into organic skin and body care to support us through the seasons.
I grow, harvest, dry and infuse these plants into the oils that make these delicate and soothing products from my home here in Wicklow. Everything is made in small batches, with a whole lot of care and attention and all our packaging is recyclable or biodegradable. All our ingredients are organic where at all possible and I am always looking to work with ethical and local suppliers.
Native Circles are a set of simple illustrations that create space for nature connection and self reflection in our living space.
Native Circles are now available as Limited Edition prints on paper and as prints mounted onto birchwood with a specially designed stand that can be placed on a table or hung on the wall.
Slow down to check in on the moon phases or reflect on the seasonal changes around you. These cycles can offer us perspective, flow and a sense of grounding in the world around us.
Think of them as a field guide to a simpler life more connected with the wonder of the natural world.

Colorínmade is a one-woman business run by Malú Colorín. She’s a Mexican natural dyer and designer living in Co. 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.
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.
Colorínmade offers naturally-dyed accessories, workshops in English and Spanish and inks made from plants and insects. Our first naturally-dyed capsule collection of linen garments will be launched in 2021.
