It had always been an idea in the back of her head: a duvet cover with a print of cardboard boxes. Especially made for charity. In 2007, advertising professional Peggy decided to execute on the idea. Together with her partner Erik she created Le-Clochard and Le-Trottoir. A duvet cover and fitted sheet that look like a cardboard box and a sidewalk. Most profits of these two special designs went to a charity organization supporting homeless youngsters in the Netherlands: 'Stichting Zwerfjongeren Nederland'. Supplies sold out in no-time.
But Peggy still had more ideas. 'Erik was sitting at home unemployed at the time and was interested in making this a full time profession. Prior to that, he had always worked in the buying and selling of sports apparel. And Peggy had plenty of ideas still. They managed to nicely combine these skills.' Today, people from Amsterdam to Australia are sleeping under a SNURK design.
