Originally a manufacturer of hats and gaiters, Colmar had humble beginnings in Monza, Italy. When financial disaster struck, owners Mario and Irma Colombo drafted in their cousin, Edoardo Sala, who suggested the company branch out, and use a special new cotton called Massaua 10. The cotton was wash resistant and shrink-proof, proving suitable for skiing apparel. Colmar then produced a pioneering garment called the ‘Thirring’, a special cape that looked like a glider-wing and inflated on the back. The piece was made for Leo Gasperl, the first winner of the speed skiing record. 

The second world war forced Colmar to diversify once more; they began producing uniforms for the French Foreign Legion and uniforms for various oil companies. 

After the war Colmar returned to the world of skiing, producing the 1947 Italian ski team uniforms and in 1948 began a professional partnership with the Italian Winter Sports Federation. It was in those years that the legendary Olimpionica was created— the mother of all windbreakers. 

Colmar continue their ski pioneering to the present day, and moved into the golf market in 2010.
