UP-CYCLED TEXTILES FOR THE WIN
Cornelia Sun is for everyone who want to become a changemaker through their wardrobe. We are a collective on a mission to restore the beauty of textiles that already exist and therefore all of our garments are made out of up-cycled fabric. These magical prints were previously were worn as traditional saris by women in Eastern Asia and they do all come with their special story to tell – just like you.
We have partner in Nepal who travel around the country to collect saris in accordance to our request. These sacred fabrics are sold by women in Nepal and India mostly because they feel ready to pay them forward. In some instances, your global sister´s story may leave small tracks such as tiny loose threads or tiny stains on the print. This is a part of the design and in our eyes it also adds beauty to the garment. We love the history behind the garment as much as the flaws and we do hope you feel the same way.

ZERO WASTE – TONS OF LOVE
According to our philosophy, waste isn't waste until you waste it. We are dedicated to find beauty in ordinary things and reuse what has already been given to us. To make sure that as less textile as possible goes to waste in our production we always strive to extract as much as we can from each design. From the left-over material we create fashionable men accessories, children wear and dog leashes. Suddenly the print will be able to live once more – without bringing any harm to Mama Earth or her people.
WHO MADE MY CLOTHES?
Knowing where your clothes are made and under what conditions shouldn’t be a secret. We believe transparency is the first step to transform the fashion industry into a force of good. Cornelia Sun Collective is designed by two sisters in Sweden and proudly produced by small family-run businesses in Kathmandu, Nepal. Our team has visited our factories personally to make sure that our co-workers operate under both good economic and environmental conditions that correspond to our code of conduct.
