Nowadays Sleeper doesn’t brand itself as a Ukrainian label, but it is one of the most successful labels to come out of the country.

A new modern take on Sleeper’s online store. An exquisite sleepwear brand needed an online store to match and that was exactly what we did. The design is clean, modern, responsive, and puts products in the main spotlight. The new store is based on the robust WooCommerce back-end and features multilingual and multi-currency support for customers from different regions.
