Holland’s biggest hospital, Amsterdam UMC, asked SNURK to redesign their bedding. It resulted in this colorful origami crane bird print. What makes it extra special is that the paper birds were folded by hospital staff members. They ended up folding over 1.000 of them, as according to the ancient Japanese tradition,1.000 crane birds will bring good fortune and health. Luckily you don’t have to end up in the hospital to enjoy the bedding, as it is also available in SNURK’s collection.
For each sold Crane Birds bedding set €1,- is donated to Cancer Center Amsterdam, where cancer research is done to find new medicine and better treatment. Update March 2019: € 2,000 collected.
