SNURK has been making bedding for over a decade. Most famous and ever popular is our kids’ collection that transforms a sleeping child into a life-size astronaut, princess, superhero, ballerina or whatever you dream of being. Our designers put a lot of creativity and effort into making our prints as realistic as possible.
A SNURK-print is not some random image downloaded from the web. It is a high-quality photograph of the real thing; our designers make themselves. But it’s not always easy to find the real thing. Like, where do you find a real Astronaut or Pirate suit? And how do you photograph a Mermaid or Fairy, when we all know how shy they are?
When the idea for the Astronaut print was born, it was clear only a real space suit would do. The Dutch Space Expo Museum owns a white Apollo Moon Suit. And luckily for all aspiring Astronauts they agreed to lend it out. Fun fact: it is SNURK owner Erik van Loo inside the space suit.
The Ballerina duvet cover is a collaboration with The Dutch National Ballet. Not only did they lend SNURK a beautiful tutu costume, but also one of their professional ballerinas
to pose in it. When you realize The Dutch National Ballet Company is ranked top 3 in the world, it makes this print all the more special. If ballet is your dream, this is your bedding.
Mermaid and Fairy
When dreams are about fantasy figures, it takes a bit more creativity to get close to the real thing. For the Mermaid bedding this meant photographing a real fish tail and crafting a pearl and seashell-covered bustier by hand. The Fairy print is born out of research. It was Cicely Mary Barker’s flower fairies from 1923 that inspired the SNURK designers. They ended up creating a winged creature wearing real flowers for a dress.
