Who is behind all this? Stefano and Vanja met on the internet by pure chance and they met for real in London back in 2002. Although at that time they were living in two different continents, they managed to keep the relationship alive unti, in 2004 Vanja decided to move to Rome. This gave them the opportunity to deepen their relationship and to decide to create together something new in the roman fetish background: Alcova project was born.
Why opening a retail shop? We made ourselves this question several times during the organization and development of the project and we heard the same question from many of our customers. The answer is simple: Alcova creates a link between the virtual and the real fetish world providing a huge selction of clothing and articled dedicate to the fetish and S/M world. Thanks to the patient work, lasted for months, of researching suppliers all over the world and of comparing prices and making agreements, Alcova is able to provide pretty much anything you might need and offer it to you at competitive prices.
Why Alcova is better than orther online shops? Alcova is not just a virtual shop. Having a retail shop means allowing our clients to come and see the merchandise, find always the right size and compare details among similar products. To those who buy online, Alcova can give suggestions for the best product to choose and is always ready to solve any problem that might occur. Moreover, if you like, you can order online and collect your package at our shop, in a very discreet way at no extra charge. We also commit ourselves to provide innovative, unique products which are able to satisfy even the most demanding customers.
Are you new to buying online? Remember that when you buy online, the price you have to pay is not only the one of the products you choos, but also the cost of shipping (if you are in an european country and buy from outside the EU, you'll have to pay also customs). Our website hase a huge catalogue of products with continue add-ons. Some products are standard ones, but many differ from each other for small details or the quality/type of the materials. On the internet you have to choose the product based on the pictures you see, that's why we use high quality images and, if possible, more than just one for each product. Alcova buys large quantities at low prices and optimizes shipping costs to let you buy the products you like with minimum waits and at affordable prices. We try to have as many articles ready in stock, but if something you want is not immediately available and has to be ordered for you, you won't pay any extra cost.
