Sewing Heroes (in Dutch Naaihelden) is an initative set up by a group of enthousiastic people from Rotterdam who have decided to play their role in supporting heroes in the medical and care sectors who are currently, very bravely, looking after the needy and need to keep themselves safe.

Especially in the care sector there is a shortage on protective gowns. Think of midwifes, home care workers, those carers in old people’s homes. The list goes on and on. These people need protection and there is a shortage of clothing to protect them. It was getting clear that these brave people were working in bin liners in order to protect themselves from possible Corona patients.

In response to the problem, lingerie designer Fabienne Hansoul started sewing gowns for her family members working in senior care. As word got round the demand got bigger. Soon along with 3 friends she started making medical gowns. Without knowing it she had started to move a mountain. Sewing Heroes was begun!
