Ruth Lloyd is a London based, textile-led design researcher, exploring sustainable, circular, and regenerative systems of colour.
Throughout her recent Textiles MA at the Royal College of Art she developed practice-based research focused on the creative potential of microbial pigments, investigating how these living colour systems present solutions and replacements to the global reliance on toxic petroleum-based colour and dye systems. 
Ruth engages with design education, research & development, and industry partners within the context of Future Systems. 
The journey continues as Ruth embarks on a PhD at the Living Systems Research Lab at Central Saint Martins, London in September 2021; and takes part in the first Creative Residency at Colorifix, a UK based start-up working to develop and commercialise bacterial dyes, where she will further explore the capacity of colour producing microorganisms to create human designed patterns.
