KOLIBRI is the story of an encounter between two people, two cultures embodied by Ana and Nicolas, and the same family tradition: that of the textile industry.

Nicolas comes from a working class family in the North of France 🇫🇷 , most of whose members worked in the textile industry until the middle of the 20th century. Today, Nicolas revives this ancestral family tradition by bringing him his vision and his modernity.

Ana is from Ecuador 🇪🇨 . His family has been making since 1985, in the small town of Otavalo, socks and tights known for their quality.

KOLIBRI is the expression of two family traditions which unite 🇫🇷 🇪🇨 to offer you socks made of quality natural and ecological fibers, designed in France and made in Ecuador.

We take special care in the creativity of our designs and the quality of the raw materials selected to combine beauty and comfort with respect for the environment. 🌎

We contribute to socio-economic development within a relatively small local community (that of the Otavalos, one of the indigenous peoples of Ecuador, belonging to the Kichwa nationality). This activity generates internal and external jobs which improve the quality of life of many local families and their environment.

KOLIBRI SOCKS refers to the bird known as hummingbird or fly bird. This small bird with bright and picturesque colors is present only on the American continent, mainly in Latin America and more particularly in Ecuador, country which has the greatest concentration of hummingbird species in the world. Our brand is inspired by the delicacy of its flight and the elegance of the colors of its feathers.

KOLIBRI also takes its name from a Native American legend:

" One day, says the legend, there was a huge forest fire. All the terrified, dismayed animals watched the disaster helplessly Only the little hummingbird was active, fetching a few drops with its beak to throw them on the fire. After a moment, the armadillo, annoyed by this ridiculous agitation, said to it : "Hummingbird! You're not crazy ? You're not going to put out the fire with these drops of water! "And the hummingbird replied:" I know, but I'm doing my part. "

KOLIBRI aims to act, at its level, in the construction of an ecological and human society. We believe that everyone can do their part to build this society.
