Founder and managing director Silvia Wald studied clothing technology in Berlin until 2007. A year later, she founded a pattern construction and making studio called Aufschnitt. Aufschnitt Berlin was invented as a play on words from the word Schnitt (= pattern construction in German, which is the basis for the creation of clothing) and the butcher's term Aufschnitt, meaning sliced meat. Paradoxically, Silvia Wald is a vegetarian herself, but loved to give her customers in the fashion industry small mini sausages as a promotional gift. The sausage was loved by everyone and soon caused quite a stir. Today, cold cuts come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit every taste.

Aufschnitt Berlin is one of the most unusual labels in the field of lifestyle product design and textile home accessories. It builds a bridge to the controversial topics of the food industry. Aufschnitt Berlin stands for grotesque humour, the absurdity of which reflects the zeitgeist of our society. The unmistakable naive style of the textile realisation of food, the love of materials and over 20 years of design and processing expertise make our products unique. The Aufschnitt Berlin product range imitates everyday sausage and meat products using traditional sewing techniques. We process cotton, lycra, microfibre and artificial leather, dye with natural dyes, use screen printing and round off the products with original materials from the meat industry.
