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.

Sheworks is a Danish

'Climate Hero'

The Danish Institute for Sustainable Innovation & Entrepeneurship (DISIE) and the Danish Entrepenuerial Union has pointed out our founder Solveig Søndergaard and Sheworks as 1 out of 8 national Climate Hero; DISIE writes:

"Solveig crafts and creates all sorts of different products using only surplus goods, being thrown out by other companies. She collaborates with the municipality and employs immigrant women, who are responsible for the handicraft in the design process. 

Sheworks creates a great story on both ends: it is sustainable, since it utilizes resource and it fulfills a great social purpose in seeing the potential of immigrant women and at the same time creating employment.

The Climate Heroes project makes purpose-driven entrepreneurs visible and forms an ambassador corps with climate entrepreneurs - those who do not see a contradiction between creating a good business and doing something good for the world."
