About Colibris

The name Colibris is really a tribute to the hummingbird. Colibris are both small and beautiful. The attribute that is perhaps most astounding is that they have no fear of humans! These birds are small but mighty and pretty but tough! We can’t think of a better name for a collection made for women with small faces.

You won’t find another brand of glasses that so unapologetically fashions its collection to serve a group of people that are in fact severely underserved by other eyewear brands. A great many eyewear brands cater to the masses. This means predictable styles for the “average” person. Sometimes eyewear manufacturers sprinkle a few petite styles with little focus on fashion or function.

Colibris petite glasses have an amazing collection of eyewear that focuses on classic styles in a myriad of colors. Their eye sizes are as small as 44 with a maximum of 51. The temples fit around the ears perfectly and the bridge comfortably nestles the nose. Colibris also has a nice collection of petite sunglasses including petite aviators.
