Colibri Canada started off with sisters Sandra O’Malley and Lori Hawkins sewing baby slings that were prized by throughout their community in 2008. They had babies, their friends had babies, so it made sense. Their guiding principle was simply to produce a sling that was safe, convenient for young families and that didn’t fall apart after a year of use.
When their kids grew older their products evolved too. Baby slings were off the roster and reusable snack bags were added.
In 2014 the Sling Sisters Inc. was re-branded as Colibri Canada. Their determined focus on quality had also made them a forerunner in the Zero-waste movement.
But these aren’t your average snack bag. They chose specialized zippers that have been tested and certified to be safe and easy for little and big fingers alike. They handpick quality fabric in fashionable prints and stitched them together so precisely that every bag will last years of use and washing.
All the bags are tested and certified ensuring they meet both FDA and Health Canada standards for food safety.
They aren’t simply manufacturing long-lasting reusable products, they’re providing household solutions that foster healthy environments and strong communities. And it’s still done through good old fashioned, hard work.
