About us

SHEWORKS ATELIER is a circular design studio which utilizes surplus and waste materials from the textile industry in Denmark creating beautiful circular products made by hand.

SHEWORKS is based in our atelier in Kolding, from where talented immigrant- and refugee women find peace and network in creating and developing together.

When supporting our business you support our goal of creating jobs for these minorities in our local community.

We are always looking for new collaborators so please feel free to connect and become an important and appreciated part of a holistic project that takes care of our planet and society as a whole.

One small step for man...

One big step for our sustainable agenda : We are the very first non-food project to join COOP Crowdfunding in Denmark. Our first project has been succesfully founded and now we are really proud to introduce some new handmade items.

"Our goal is to create jobs; our purpose

is to be the leading Danish Design Hub

for Circularity & Material Prolongation"

Our mission


We work to raise the quality of life and create jobs and network for immigrant women by developing their skills through their interests in craft and design.


Our zero-waste designs are crafted locally from high quality surplus material from the Danish textile industry in  an effort to lower the negative impact on our planet.


We design our products, so you do not need to compromise on aesthetics when you wish to act sustainably. Each product is handmade and completely unique.
