Meet a Member: Fireside Chat with Rocío Mena Gutierrez

March 2022

Rocío Mena Gutierrez is a WARP member from Mexico City. She is the founder of ZIKURI and a natural dye passionate. This path has led her to learn in different places such as Mexico, France, the United States, Japan and Guatemala. Through her brand, Rocío unites her two passions: natural dyeing education and designing bags. Her purpose is to inspire by achieving beautiful colors and by making us aware of the processes involved so that we can feel the connection with the materials and the essence of things.

In 2014, Rocío worked with women in San Rafael, Guatemala on developing a kit of beautiful naturally dyed cotton yarns in all colors of the rainbow. This project, Tintes Naturales, was a collaboration between WARP member organizations Mayan HandsCotton Clouds, Rocío, and several other WARP members. You can learn more about the development of the Tintes Naturales Project by reading Rocio’s blog.
