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. Twice as magic. 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
All our designs are made from textiles that previously have been worn by women in Asia as traditional saris. Our love for this region is deep and pure and our hearts are forever connected to the places from where our textiles come from. To us, it is a matter of course to give back to the communities where our fabrics were worn in the first place. Over and over again, we see that when women succeed, communities succeed. According to this background our main goal is to support initiatives that aim to empower women and the youngest loved ones – our next generation.
BECOME A CHANGEMAKER THROUGH YOUR WARDROBE
We believe that education is the key and raising awareness can be done in many ways. That is why our engagement has an holistic approach that covers both physically, socially, financially and spiritual aspects. Our commitment is always locally rooted and we only partner with non-political and non-religious organizations with long lasting ambitions. Before we started to collaborate with the organizations we´re contributing to today we visited ourselves and co-founder Lisa stayed in india for two month to participate in the start up of a project with focus on women empowerment.
All donations given are directed to the most current need and we always make sure to confirm with our non-profit partners what the girls are looking out for at the moment to make sure we´re up to date and meet the demand. Following are examples of what our collective has been contributing to lately; teacher wages, school books, sanitary and fabrics to make clothing for the children etc.
By connecting with your global sisters through these textiles we can make sure that the next generation we´re supporting can grow up under more fair, equal and sustainable circumstances. Stay updated via our blog and social media feed to find out more about the latest news from each project – together we´re convinced that we can change the world with style >>
