Our Story

We imagine that you wonder how such a unique idea emerged.

Founder and Creative Director Silvia Wald studied clothing technology in Berlin until 2007. Wald founded Aufschnitt in 2008. The studio for textile object design came to life as a play on the word 'Schnittkonstruktion', the basis for the creation of clothing and the butcher's term for cold cut meats. Paradoxically, Wald is a vegetarian, but loves to give her fashion industry customers mini minced sausage as an advertising present. Aufschnitt's sausages are loved by everyone and cause quite the stir. Currently, the studio offers a variety of shapes and sizes to suit every taste. Our curiosities and delicacies can be found not only in the simple butcher, but also in bakeries, vegetable shops, on markets and of course in our concept store in Berlin. In the future, we believe that we can implement all things textile into our product range, with the hope and happiness to expand into supermarkets and beyond.

Aufschnitt is one of the most extraordinary labels in the area of lifestyle design products and textile home accessories and is building a bridge to the explosive issues of the food industry. Aufschnitt stands for grotesque humor, with an absurdity that reflects the zeitgeist of our society. The unmistakable naïve style of textile implementation of food, love for material and texture, and design and production experience of over 12 years makes our products unique. Aufschnitt's designs mimic everyday sausage and meat products in traditional sewing techniques. We work with cotton, lycra, microfibre and synthetic leather, dye with natural dyes, screen print and incorporate original items from the butcher industry.
