Here is what our customers say

My Valeriana seamstress has done a great job and was very hard-working. Unexpectedly, I was in the hospital for nine days and had two stuffed animals made for my children. My kids slept great with their new pets, even now that I'm back home. We are thrilled, many thanks!

Sandra, happy Valeriana customer

We have our apartment cleaned 2x a month through Valeriana. We are delighted with the service, and a chat with our help is always very refreshing. Above all, it's great to hear how the Valeriana community supports and advances women.

Roswitha, happy Valeriana customer

I love being able to discuss sewing requests and alterations with clients over coffee. Even though my German isn't perfect, its great to be able to exchange ideas and learn from each other. I'm always extremely happy when I can fulfill the requested wishes and alterations. Valeriana is a perfect match for me and I'm grateful for the opportunity.

Hatun, Valeriana-Employee

It fills me with great joy when I can clean a home for someone, as through this I'm able to create a beautiful and clean atmosphere. At Valeriana it's an even greater pleasure, as I'm able to attend courses and if there's ever an issue the community is always there to help. I love the interaction with the other workers and clients, and am excited to see how everything will grow and become bigger.

I've lived in Switzerland for 10 years. Thanks to Valeriana I'm able to work in my original profession as seamstress, and earn an income. I greatly value the contact to the clients and other ladies. My German has already improved and I'm looking forward to all the upcoming trips and workshops.
