The German word Handdruck means both “handshake” and “hand printing”. Handdruck is also the name of the series of screen-printed textiles and objects produced in Bolzano, Italy, by an international collective of textile designers and artists between the 1970s and the early 1990s.

The collective was founded by textile engineer Otto Von Aufschnaiter and his wife Carmen Von Aufschnaiter, involved South Tyrolean artist Anna Wielander Platzgummer, architect and designer Anton Hofer and textile design lecturer Erna Hitzberger.
The entire production took place in the printing workshop built in the back of their natural yarn shop and was discontinued in 1993. The printing looms were lost and to this day only the original designs and some unsold fabrics remain preserved. The Handdruck series was rediscovered and documented by Elena Meneghini and Nicola Chemotti for the first time in 2012 and in 2017 part of the original production was redesigned into the Neue Serie Handdruck.

The peacock was originally illustrated in the 70s by South Tyrolean artist and teacher Anna Wielander Platzgummer.
The pattern is inspired by nature and the rock-carved symbols in the Dolomite mountains.
