Our History, Our Future
FILTHY HAANZ is a lifestyle brand based in Los Angeles with an office in Montreal that produces Resortwear, swimwear, leisure and formal wear for women and men. Using themes that manifest in prints, colors, patterns, and use of the unique logo in original form or manipulated; the collections are usually on trend or ahead of trend.
The meaning of FILTHY HAANZ is a celebration of life. The human hand is the symbol of creation, and while filthy has come to define “dirty” or “messy” we term “a filthy hand” as the ultimate tribute to work and creation, the foundation of life. The clothing created by this label uses the human body to create the beauty of the clothing, just as clothing many times creates the beauty of the body.
FILTHY HAANZ was created with all in mind, a North American based fashion label that is for the international community. We did not spell “hands” with traditional English spelling because this label is not just North-American, we created a new spelling that is neutral therefore belonging to all languages and all nationalities.
