Both socially and environmentally our pursuit is to create a positive impact. At SHEworks, we work with love and care for our planet and our people. We create jobs for skilled refugee women with an interest in design and craftsmanship, who struggle to get their grip on the job market. Our vision is to strengthen their network and increase their quality of life. Because we believe that when you do something you’re passionate about and you work creatively together in community, you will become happier – and better at what you do.
Working from zero-waste principles, we are upcycling textile pre-consumer waste materials into new, aesthetic lifestyle products. With a love for design and in order to lower the negative impact on our planet, our products have undergone a time-consuming design process. This is to make sure, we reach the aesthetic expression, we wish for, and that every single millimeter of the fabric is being used. In doing so, we take care of our planet by carefully utilizing the resources. All our products are unique and handmade.
We collaborate with a wide range of companies in the Danish textile industry, such as Georg Jensen Damask, Sofacompany, Fritz Hansen and YKK. Our collaborations are different, but our common goal is to make use of the surplus materials of the industry and create sustainable, circular products. SHEworks is showing the way in how we can utilize and turn over the resources in our local community – human as well as materialistic – beneficial to both people and our one and only planet.
