Breakfast Pillows, Anyone?

The Japanese love to create unusual items with pillows but we would have never expected this from a German company.

Aufschnitt Berlin, which is owned by textile designer Silvia Wild, has developed and manufactured a line of hand-stitched pillows and cushions that are modelled after breakfast food products, such as these examples below.

Going by its name, as “aufschnitt” is actually the German term for “cold cuts”, the company is really living up to its identity with its very detailed creations.┬áIn its actual store in Berlin, the shop is, in fact, designed like a meat store, with items like these displayed as if one has entered the butcher shop.

The pillows are all made of fabric and can be cleaned by washing and aside from “meat products”, the store also has other interesting items for sale, such as pillows in the shape of human body parts or animals.

It’s quaint, it’s cute, and it’s a novelty that may be a great idea for gift-giving this holidays, don’t you think?
