We have carefully curated a small batch of ethically and sustainably made clothing, accessories, and gifts. Each purchase supports creative women.
Small batch, sustainable fashion. Equipping female creatives.
The mission of the Story Shop Studio is to support creative women - artists, designers, musicians, and anyone with a vision and an ounce of savvy. Founded by an artist with a deep commitment to empowering other female makers, The Story Shop seeks to be more than a retail clothing shop. Each purchase in our tightly curated, ethically-made clothing line will support at least one hour of creative or career coaching for a female artist. Women supporting women (not to mention we will look great doing it!)
In recent history, the garment industry has devalued the craftspeople that produce garments and has disregarded relationships with makers. In an effort to combat these dehumanizing practices, the Story Shop seeks to build relationships with craftspeople and makers who design and create our garments. Every piece in our shop is ethically and sustainably made.

Gabriele, founder of Salanida, was brought up in her mother’s manufacturing company in Lithuania where she became passionate about fashion at an early age. She later studied Fashion at Istituto Marangoni in London and Polimoda in Florence. Her sweaters aren’t mass produced. Each sweater is knitted by skilled women using domestic knitting machines. Most of the sweaters Salanida produces are made-to-order and carry a bit of the knitter’s energy.
Barrow appreciates variation. They avoid methods of mass production to ensure subtle changes from piece to piece. They enjoy the process of making, so please keep your eyes open for an ever evolving selection of jewelry and homeware (and whatever else we come up with).
After a decade of friendship and two MFAs in Painting, Rachel Warkentin and Lindsay Jordan Kretchun decided to embark on a new adventure together, founding Barrow in 2013. They are living, working and playing in Portland, Oregon.
