According to us, the word 'sharing' has a deeper meaning. We founded Cornelia Sun Collective in order to develop a creative platform where our dreams about making the world a better place could grow. Let your garment be a reminder of what is possible when unique individuals stand together for the benefit of all. By sharing we can create something twice as a big. Absolutely magical. This is our way of giving back to Mama Earth and all her people. Dress up, walk your talk and always remembering – what we share is more powerful than what divides us.

HOW WE GIVE BACK
To us, it is important that our garments not only strengthen the people who wear these magical designs – but also Mama Earth and our global sisters. Over and over again, we see that when women succeed, communities succeed. Therefore, our ambition with this collective is to contribute to positive development on a higher level and our main focus is women and children.
Our engagement is personal and it has an holistic approach that covers both physical, social, spiritual and financial aspects. Each purchase make a difference and 10% of our profits go directly to empower our sisterhood via local activities and longterm non-profits projects in the area where our fabrics first originated.
This is how we aim to re-invest:
– we organize local activities in Sweden such as creative workshops, lectures about sustainable fashion and gatherings in general that aim to support and empower women and young girls (and children) in the area where we live.
– we do annual contributions to our non-profits partner in Nepal and every single penny given away is ment to meet the demand (for example we always pay for the school fees).
– we support different kind of charity projects and ideas linked to the Global goals, Agenda 2030.
BECOME A CHANGEMAKER THROUGH YOUR WARDROBE
We believe that education is the key and raising awareness can be done in many ways. As mentioned, we are dedicated to give back something to the communities where our fabrics first originated. Our commitment is always locally rooted and we only partner with non-political and non-religious organisations with long lasting ambitions. Therefore we have partnered up with a longterm non-profit organisation in Kathmandu, Nepal.
Based on a dialogue with the organisation we make sure to meet the demand. Teachers are hired, hygiene products have been purchased to provide the young females with everything they need during their circle, school fees have been paid for all the children on the orphanage in Nepal and materials for the women project in India has been given. The list goes on and we´re happy to keep you informed in social media and our blog called STORIES.
