About us and Landjäger

History of the Landjäger

Landjäger - The sausage

Landjäger is the name given to portioned, reddened raw sausages. It is thought to have originated in the Alemannic cultural area. The name is said to go back to the comparison with Landjäger sausages.

According to the Swiss Idiotikon, the word Landjäger is perhaps derived from the dialectal "lang tige(n)", which means "long smoked" or "long air-dried". The joking reinterpretation may have been inspired by the fact that the stiff appearance of the sausage was compared to the military stiffness of a man in uniform.

Landjäger - The "policeman

The Landjäger has existed under this name since the 19th century.

In parts of the German-speaking world at the end of the 18th century, the term Landjäger was used to describe special police officers who kept order in rural areas. Whether the name of the sausage is an ironic allusion to the red skirts and officer-like stiffness of the Landjäger remains a matter of speculation, however.

The square shape of the Landjäger was already common at the time.

The Atlas of Folklore shows that the Landjäger tended to be an eastern Swiss sausage specialty that slowly spread westwards. In the 1930s, the Atlas documentarians describe how the Swiss-German Gendarmes was also becoming increasingly popular in French-speaking Switzerland.

Each individual item is marked with the Swiss cross, the "Edelschweiz", as a symbol of identity. It also stands for Switzerland's neutrality and independence. A new trend has been born that will delight the young and the young at heart and is an eye-catcher for both the Swiss and tourists.

Mario Lang, the founder of the new fashion label, originally comes from the world of helicopter flying. The Swiss colors red and white are also an integral part of aviation; we are reminded of Swiss, Rega and not least the Patrouille Suisse, to whom we dedicated a shirt. Seen in this light, the leap is not as big as you might initially think.
