Haderlump is a Berlin-based fashion label dedicated to the urban style of the capital city. But while some may think it’s the Berlin Aesthetic or chic structure that gives a design its character, for Haderlump, the value of a garment, the message it can send, and the way its owner can feel, is much deeper than the look itself. Haderlump brings new life to what has been left behind and extends its mindful efforts beyond the industry to produce couture fashion with credibility. From the fabrics to the final product, from the design to the final sale, the impact of every step is considered. By placing importance on transparency, Haderlump Atelier establishes that every detail of a garment’s creation is an opportunity to define its expression. Thus, the output is more than just a visual statement, but a symbol of intention. “Haderlump” was a derogatory term for the traveling people who collected and resold worn-out clothing and fabric scraps from the middle ages to the 18th century. Haderlump Atelier Berlin redefines the slur for the “have-nots” into an admirable title for those who choose not to overlook the “rags”; those who can find inspiration and value in what others mistake to be “good-for-nothing”. Designer, Johann Ehrhardt, transforms leftover textiles into unique pieces. Reconnecting the “scraps” and leftovers together, Haderlump is a study of Berlin’s urban aesthetic; a harmony of elegance and disruption, of quiet and noise, of old and new.
