Luisa Uribe is a Colombian born designer/maker based in London. Her long interest in Asian arts and crafts lead Luisa to spend a few years living in Japan where she discovered a true love for indigo dyeing.
“ Indigo is not only my favourite colour, it’s what connects me the most with nature”
The study and practice of traditional textile techniques in Japan influenced the future of her career and on her return to the UK, Luisa began creating natural indigo textile art and slow-made luxury goods.
Her love for indigo has also taken Luisa to spend some time in India, where she learnt about mud resist dyeing and hand block printing. Luisa is now growing her own Persicaria tinctoria small crop to extract her own indigo pigment from the leaves.
Luisa hopes to keep sharing her passion for indigo with many others and reflect through her work the great respect she has for the craftsmanship and people who have influenced her. She is currently running workshops around Europe.
