The makers of the colorful StoryBags :)

Every piece made by the Maadi women is made with so much love and joy in the atelier in Cairo, Egypt.

The Maadi women organization supports women in Cairo to become financial independent by teaching the women sewing skills and on top of that donating a sewing machine for at home so they can work from home whenever they have family duty's.

Next to a work place, the Maadi organization offers a safe haven for the women and a sense of community.

Today is the International Day of the Girl. A day named by the UN to promote the rights of girls and addressing the unique challenges they face in society.

Here is a beautiful quote from our partner Madhu, of the Saheli Women in India.

‘Sometimes, people ask me why we only work with women. It is globally recognised that when money flows into the hands of women, they spend it on nutritious food, healthcare, and on the education of their children. They direct it into their families and communities, aiding them to progressively move out of poverty, and the positive effects of this spread well beyond their immediate circle.’

Pictured are our ladies from our Saheli Women centre in Cali Beri. Many of the ladies from this village did not receive a full education when they were girls, and the skills they have learnt and income they earn at Saheli Women allows them to work hard every day to change the reality for their girls.

This is why we are SO PROUD to partner up with the Saheli Women! 💖

As the brand is called StoryDress, of course the story behind making our dresses is what drives us. We try to make the world a little better and happier one dress at the time. This collection we build a beautiful collaboration with the Saheli women in North India.


Every dress made by the Saheli women is made with heart and soul and results into a little piece of colorful art that lights up your heart.

Every dress comes with a personal note from the maker. What is her Story? What are her dreams for the future? And how can we help her realize them? At the foundation, the wellbeing and growth of the women that are employed is the top priority. By teaching the women how to independently tailor the dresses the foundation supports the women financially, but more importantly mentally, to realize their dreams.

Come celebrate with us!

We would love to invite you to our collection celebration, the 2nd of July.

Last months we have been working on a beautiful collaboration with the Saheli women in North India. It has brought so much color and positivity in our lives, and we would love to pass on their beautiful story during our collection event.

When: 2nd of July 12:00-18:00

Where: Swan Store, Rotterdam
Oude Binnenweg 137

What to expect: A colorful and inspirational day with a festive Indian theme. You can of course browse through the collection, but also meet like-minded people and indulge yourself in the inspirational story of the Saheli women.

The dresses:
Every dress made by the Saheli women is made with heart and soul and results into a little piece of colorful art. The dresses are made from beautiful silk up-cycled sarees. As every saree is unique, every dress is one-of-a kind. So no one will have the same dress as you.

The collection is made with a zero waste principle. There are no new textiles used for this collection, and every piece of the saree is used to make a beautiful item. This resulted into a beautiful collection, but more importantly it has only a positive impact on the world.

Looking forward to see you the 2nd of July!

With Love,

Suzan & the Saheli Women

As you may know, I have been in India for the last months to set up a project with the Saheli woman foundation. The foundation helps women in rural India to become financially independent by teaching them sewing and embroidery skills. But more importantly, to help them develop into proud, skilled, and happy tailors.

The first day I visited the foundation, a wave of happiness and positivity took over me. The women are working at the atelier with great pleasure and are super proud of their work. As they should be! Every dress made by the Saheli women is made with heart and soul and results in little pieces of colorful art.

It didn’t take long before we got all our ideas together and designed a beautiful collection. The party began when the textiles came out. We decided to make dresses from up-cycled sarees. These sarees have been worn on special occasions in India, and now we are selecting the best ones to give a new life to beautiful dresses.

The dresses will be ready begin June, and ofcourse the results will be shared with you. :) (In the last video already a little sneak peek)

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” # StoryDress # Vietnam, Forbidden Purple City

As the days are getting longer, the sun is warming ours skins and the borders are open again to explore the world our thoughts are wandering off where to spend this Summer of Freedom. Where is your next adventure off to?

We went to Ibiza to capture this beautiful moment of (inner)freedom. After not being able to travel for 2 years this trip tasted like a starter. I will be exploring the world again, as the eye must travel, and take you along with me via my designs.

I wish you an amazing start of the summer and take this dress with you on your holidays!

Ps. This summer dress has a very sunny price. This week, until the (30th of april) the dress will be € 99,00 instead of € 149,00

Europarlementariër Vera Tax maakt samen met StoryDress een vuist voor vrouwenrechten!

Vera Tax zet zich in het Europees Parlement in voor gelijke beloning tussen mannen en vrouwen. Deze wet moet ervoor gaan zorgen dat bedrijven worden verplicht om de loonkloof in hun organisatie te onderzoeken, erover te rapporteren en te dichten als er sprake van is. Daarnaast zet Vera Tax zich in voor emancipatie, keuzevrijheid en de fundamentele rechten van vrouwen in Europa. Een powervrouw met een missie!

Gelijke kansen hebben we nog lang niet voor elkaar en dus ga ik aan de slag, steek mijn handen uit de mouwen en probeer mijn steentje bij te dragen aan de oplossing.

Als antwoord op de vraag wie haar het meest inspireert antwoordt ze volmondig Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Te midden van 453 mannen studeerde Ruth Bader Ginsburg als één van de weinige vrouwen rechten aan de gerenommeerde universiteit Harvard. Ze schopte het uiteindelijk tot rechter aan het Amerikaanse Hooggerechtshof. Een vrouw vol vechtlust en doorzettingsvermogen en een inspiratie voor ons allemaal. Als kijktip geeft ze ons de film ´On the Basis of sex´ mee te kijken.

SER-voorzitter Mariëtte Hamer maakt samen met StoryDress een vuist voor vrouwenrechten!

Op 4 april start Mariëtte Hamer als regeringscommissaris voor de aanpak van seksueel grensoverschrijdend gedrag. Haar missie om vrouwen een veilige werkomgeving te bieden en een cultuur te creëren waarin iedereen zich gehoord voelt, is een thema dat haar in haar hele loopbaan nauw aan het hart ligt.

Al van jongs af aan is emancipatie een belangrijk thema in haar leven. Haar moeder wilde graag werken maar dat was not done. Al op vrij jonge leeftijd dacht Mariette, dat moet anders! Haar loopbaan startte als eerste vrouwelijke voorzitter van de landelijke studenten vakbond. Daarna volgden er nog vele ‘eerste vrouwelijke voorzitters’ posities en maakt ze zich hard voor meer diversiteit op de werkvloer. Per 1 januari is de wet ‘Evenwichtiger verhouding van zetels tussen mannen en vrouwen in het bestuur en de raad van commissarissen van grote naamloze en besloten vennootschappen', kortweg wet ingroeiquotum en streefcijfers van kracht.

In haar posities speelt het helpen van andere vrouwen een belangrijke rol. “Als ik zelf een stapje hoger ga, is het leuk om andere vrouwen te helpen ook een stapje hoger te komen. Op die manier komen er meer vrouwen aan de top en gaan er echt dingen veranderen in de bedrijfscultuur. Daar zet ik me graag voor in!”
