Co-Founders Peggy Van Neer and Erik van Loo are passionate about bedding. It started with a silly idea 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.)
The Snurk Home Duvet lets you sleep under a cardboard box so a homeless person doesn't have to!
This high quality duvet cover features a photographic print of a cardboard box. This produces an extremely sharp image that stays flexible because the ink is printed directly in the cotton. The image will stay crisp after frequent washing.
The cotton has a thread count of 144 threads per square inch, so it's soft to the touch virtually non-iron. The duvet cover is produced in Portugal and child labour is not used.
Part of the proceeds are donated to the Big Issue, the charity that helps homeless and vulnerably housed people.
