About

Do you know the legend of the hummingbird ? 

One day, said the legend, there was a huge forest fire. All the terrified, aghast animals watched the disaster helplessly. Only the little hummingbird was activated, fetching a few drops with its beak to throw them on the fire. After a moment, the armadillo, annoyed by this derisory agitation, said to him: "Hummingbird! Are not you crazy? It is not with these drops of water that you will extinguish the fire! " 

And the hummingbird replied, "I know, but I'm doing my part”.

The moral of this legend is that everyone can act at its own level. Taken individually, our actions may seem derisory, but it is thanks to the sum of the hummingbirds that things change.

At some point in my life, it was no longer possible for me to continue carrying my bags made from animal skin. I started to inform myself about leather, and I discovered one of the most polluting industries in the world. Most of the production is based in countries which has no environmental neither human regulations. Leather is a disaster. A human, animal and ecological disaster. But I could not find an alternative that suits me, both aesthetically and ecologically.

This is where I started.
A few months later, Colibri was born !

THE BRAND

Colibri is a new premium French brand, created around two major pillars: luxury and sustainability. We produce high-end vegan handbags with the best eco-friendly materials. 

Our bags are handcrafted in France in small batches, to offer the highest quality production. Our partner, an independent workshop, also works for the biggest names in the luxury leather-goods industry. 

Thanks to this savoir-faire, we produce top-quality bags with high-end finishes. Because we think the future of luxury fashion is vegan.

ECO-DESIGN

The brand has been developed according to the principles of eco-design: we are respectful of the environment, animals and people. Our suppliers have been selected for their high-end products, but also for their ethical and environmental commitments.

We are part of the slow-fashion movement : our bags are high-quality products, made to last, and our productions are in limited series. We rationalized the packaging and only use recyclable and/or recycled materials.

Red inner lining (organic cotton) + 4 pockets inside :

WHY A KICKSTARTER ?

Our first collection was launched in November, and so far it’s been a success. We still have had no returns and only received happy messages from our customers ! No doubt our signature bag is the amazing bucket bag named Vesper. Besides being beautiful and eco-friendly, this bag is also very handy. 

Many of you have asked for a more affordable version of this bag… So here it is ! To offer you the lower price for a fixed period, we propose this new version on pre-sale. That means no retailers, and no stock : we will only produce what is pre-ordered !

The difference between Classic Vesper and this new version ? We replaced the Alcantara microfiber inside by an organic cotton and chose a more classic chain. But most importantly, this version will be available only on pre-sale via Kickstarter, and won't be sold after this campaign : it's your only chance to get your own !

HOW ARE MADE THE BAGS ? 

- The production is entirely handmade. Our workshop is based in France, because we support craftsmanship, savoir-faire and local manufacturing. It’s also the highest quality production, and a warrant that your bag will last.
- The soft stripes are Alcantara, made in Italy. Alcantara is a committed company, carbon-neutral, and they produce the best microfiber in the world ! We have to be sure to use high-end materials to make your bag live long.
- The faux-leather is vegan, eco-friendly and made in Italy. It’s the best « faux » for us : smooth and lightweight, a perfect match for the unique design of our bucket bag ! It’s a very soft and robust material, the ideal cruelty-free alternative to animal leather.
- The inner lining is red organic cotton, made in France and GOTS certified.
- The brass chains are from Italy, they are hypoallergenic, nickel-free and palladium-free.
- The Riri zippers are made in Switzerland. They are the highest quality zippers and the number one choice for many high-end designers.
- The Colibri medal is made of bronze by a French jeweler. 

WHAT DO YOU SUPPORT WHEN YOU PURCHASE ONE OF OUR BAGS ? 

By purchasing a Colibri handbag, you support craftsmanship and you preserve high-skilled jobs
You allow leather workshops to diversify their activity by working on alternative materials instead of animal leather.
You are guaranteed that your bag has been made ethically, with excellent working and remuneration conditions.

And last but not least, you will be the blessed owner of a really gorgeous bag : handy, soft, lightweight, long-lasting, vegan, and so classy !

HOW TO PREORDER ?

You can choose the color of your bag between the 7 colors available by selecting the corresponding contribution.

Available colors : BLACK (red inner lining) - TAWNY (red inner lining) - CHOCOLATE (red inner lining) - GREY (red inner lining) - BORDEAUX (RED) (black inner lining) + new : BLUE (red inner lining) + new - BEIGE (red inner lining)

BLUE and BEIGE - new colors
BLUE and BEIGE - new colors

For each color, the first 3 purchasers can enjoy a very special "early bird" price. Don't let your favorite Vesper fly away !

As soon as pre-sales are completed, we will launch the production of the bags. They will be shipped in October.

If you don't want a bag but you agree with our approach, you can also contribute to help us grown and develop new models by giving the amount of your choice ! Your help is precious to us, and your name will appear on our website as a special contributor :)

Risks and challenges

Pre-sales will close by the end of July and the bags will be available in October. It may takes a little longer if we have more orders than planned. During summer holidays, things can move in slow-motion because our suppliers are closed in August :)

As the brand is already launch, we know our suppliers and the production process has already been improved.
