Women's Streetwear Store Owner

We met Saskia outside her women's only streetwear store 'Maha', during an afternoon lull on Amsterdam's Vijzelstraat… 

It all started after another bad day at school, and a bad day at work. I was speaking to the class about the misrepresentation of women in streetwear, but no one could understand what I was talking about. I’d had enough. That’s how Maha started.

Dian – my partner – and I gathered our hard-earned money together and decided to go out and make it. And we did. He is my hero, Dian, he brings out the best in everyone, it’s his secret super power. Together we did something which no one else dared to and now we just enjoy it, every day, in any situation. Just making the best of it. 

I can be chaotic, always running around, giving my opinion – on everything - literally everything. Some might call it stubborn, but it means that everything we do at Maha reflects what I believe. It’s authentic, that’s important. 

To me, being authentic means doing something unique to what other people are doing. That’s what I’m all about.

So, it’s my way or the highway. (laughs) 

We’ve been brewing a premium pilsner with real substance since 1842. A naturally green hop aroma, a crisp finish and a clean, confident bitterness from the combination of two Hallertau hops: Emerald and Magnum.
