Snurk beddengoedIt started with a sillyidea about a cardboard box duvet cover; Le-Clochard. And it lived inside Peggy's head for years. One day, Erik lost his job unexpectedly. But Erik knew about the idea and had an idea of his own. He wanted to actually make and sell the duvet cover.
Together they worked out a plan to donate a large part of the proceeds to The Dutch Foundation for Homeless Youngsters (SZN). Because a duvet cover like Le-Clochard only sleeps well if it actually helps a homeless person. The Homeless Foundation responded with enthusiasm to their plans and so Erik and Peggy decided to take the plunge.
Le-Clochard was a success. Magazines, newspapers and blogs wrote about it. And not just in the Netherlands. Other foundations from the United Kingdom and Germany joined the project and shared in profit and media attention.
And new ideas kept on coming. Just like emails from people all over the world wanting more unusual bedding like this. A year and a half later SNURK bedding was introduced. (SNURK means "to snore" in Dutch.)
Our designs start out as ideas in Holland. Sometimes sketched out poorly, sometimes not even that. But with the helping hands of our talented friends, our ideas turn into photographic designs. Then they get sent off to Portugal, where again we rely on hard working helping hands to get them produced. It can sometimes take months to get a design to where we want it to be. So for us it only makes sense that after all that time, care and effort, we print it on the best cotton and velour available. A great design deserves great fabric. And that’s pretty much how we create our bedding and cushions, made for your horizontal happiness. Enjoy.
