4. All items of Somnia Romantica are made in limited quantities. This means I do make multiple items of one model, however I never make the exact same piece many times. If the interest for a certain model is big, I always keep on varying with the fabrics, trims and decoration.

5. Items are packaged carefully and sent ensured with the most trusted Dutch compagny. On request I can make a free, beautiful giftwrap!

6. All pieces are manufactured in a smoke/ and petfree enviroment.

7. Next to wholesale materials which are usually in stock, Somnia often works with materials from all kind of places. Little markets, vintage lace, import from several countries... Sometimes the pictured material is no longer available. Somnia will let you know and show you the alternative before proceeding the order.

8. Everything is handwash or dryclean only! The materials Somnia works with are delicate. Handled with care they will remain in best shape.

9. Somnia Romantica works a lot with authentic historical patterns, mostly from the timeline 1860-1940. They are altered into personal designs.

10. Somnia (meaning 'dream' and 'moonshine' in Latin) designs for 'nightlife'. From gala to theatre, from club to stage. Of course in the end the use can be for any purpose the customer wishes to!
Somnia Romantica is a label which celebrates the history of European and New World clothing. Its goal is to bring this rich and romantic legacy in a personal way back into the modern world.
