Julia is a trained designer and worked in London for fashion designer and lifestyle boutiques for over 10 years. Missing her childhood fare, she started her own German brunch pop-up in East London in an old pie shop before moving to Berlin to found the community and event kitchen DAHEIM MANUFAKTUR.
In DAHEIM MANUFAKTUR caterers, food start-ups and cooking classes alike share a hygiene office-certified kitchen. Professional cleaning is a vital part of the business. After a short time, Julia noticed that conventional cleaning products significantly worsened her asthma so she decided to find a way to stop using synthetic chemicals for cleaning, without compromising professional hygiene.
Julia began to ferment her own live cleaning vinegar in the kitchen from left-over fruit peel together with fallen fruit from a Brandenburg beekeeper she befriended. Because of her longstanding love for artisanal scents as well as her life long fascination with old German witchcraft she started introducing magical local herbs and pure essential oils to her products.
As a result, “BERLINER ZAUBERKRAUT” was born.
