How To Make Dreams Come True

Snurk has been making bedding for over a decade. Most famous and ever-popular is their kids’ collection! This inspiring range transforms a sleeping child into a life-size astronaut, princess, ballerina, equestrian or whatever your child dreams of being. The talented designers at Snurk put a lot of creativity and effort into making their prints as realistic as possible.

A Snurk-print is not just some random image downloaded from the web. It is a high-quality photograph of the real thing, created by the designers themselves. However, finding the real thing isn’t always easy! Where does one find a real Astronaut or Pirate suit? And how do you photograph a Mermaid or a Fairy, when we all know how shy they are?

Astronaut
When the idea for the Astronaut print was conceived, 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 those aspiring Astronauts out there, they agreed to lend it out. Fun fact: it’s Snurk owner Erik van Loo inside the space suit!

Ballerina

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! How cool is that! to pose in it. When you realize that 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, then this is the bedding set for you.

When dreams are about fantasy figures, it takes a bit more creativity to get close to the real thing. For the Mermaid bedding set, 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.
