The rounded form of the Bockwurst pillow is tied with decorative cords. This technique of tying is traditionally used in the kitchen when preparing various meat and vegetable dishes. With Aufschnitt, the design element is drawn out and used as a decoration. The emerging bulges created by the knotting compose an exciting surface pattern reminiscent of quilted bedspreads.
The prefabricated cover is made from different colored microfibre and is pulled over the inner cushion then turned inward on both ends. One, continuous cording is wrapped around the form, knotted throughout from beginning to end. It is closed at the upper end with a looped hanger.
The filling of the inner cushion is made from siliconized polyester fiber. This type of filler holds its shape better than cotton filler, resists molds, and is anti-microbial and hypoallergenic.
