It all began back in our living room in our home town in the northern part of Sweden. Two sisters, with one vision. We were using our mum´s old scarves, patterns from vintage skirts and second hand clothes that needed a make over. All these textiles turned out to be just perfect for the kind of clothing we were longing to create. Non of us had any educational skills when it came to designing clothes, but somehow that did not stop us from trying. Cornelia Sun was born from reflection, not perfection. All we ever wanted was to find a colorful way to raise awareness about sustainability and global consideration – a way to change the world with style.
Today, we’re proud that all elements of Cornelia Sun are still a reflection of the values we hold. We believe that fashion can be made in a safe, clean and beautiful way where creativity, quality, environment and people are valued equally. Our collective continuously strive to improve ways of working towards a more sustainable environment and we´re determined to transform the fashion industry into a force for good. It is our responsibility to address these impacts in order to walk a little lighter on the earth. Come join us on our journey towards a more sustainable, fair and equal future. A single garment won´t change the world – but the community behind it will.
ZERO WASTE, TONS OF LOVE Our ambition is to transform textiles and reuse the beauty that already exist. 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. Every single item is a unique one-of-a-kind and our collections are handmade by love in small scale production. Today, all our timeless designs are created out of 100% up-cycled textiles that previously have been worn as saris by women in Eastern Asia. Suddenly the fabric comes alive once again – without bringing any harm to Mother Nature or her people.
