About Us

Colibri Towelling is a well-established terry towelling manufacturer whose roots date back to the early 1950’s, when it started manufacturing in Uitenhage, Eastern Cape. The brand has become a household brand synonymous with quality, durability and value for money.


In 2010 the decision was made to move all the manufacturing activities of the company to Strand in the Western Cape.


The shareholding structure of the group of companies has changed many times over the years until the Industrial Development Corporation of South Africa stepped in to avert closure in 2011 and has since been the 100% shareholder.


The manufacturing base in Strand produces a wide range of terry products for both the formal and informal retail markets. The company focuses on establishing mutually beneficial relationships with its stakeholders with a focus on maintaining sustainable value chains within the industry.
