Miskeen Originals was born in the streets of West-Philadelphia by
the hands of a dynamic artist who expressed the pain and passion
of his community through his artwork on shirts. In 1999 the hand
painted garments caught the eye of retailer Dr. Denim who respected
the art and put the garments in its stores. In one weekend all 200
shirts were sold. The streets had spoken and a legend began...
Popularity rose quickly and soon one artist wasn't enough.
By selecting the cream of the crop, Miskeen became a team of young
multi-talented artists. Together they created a unique place where
hot street wear originates and people can do what they love most:
express their emotions through paint. In the state-of-the-art fashion
studio in Camden NJ, each garment becomes a masterpiece in the
hands of the Miskeen artist. No two items are alike. The innovative
blend of colorful paint, pop-art, and fashion makes the style unique.
The combination of the artists' urban lifestyles and talents ensure
the creation of the freshest art on a daily basis. Miskeen is well
respected in the street and has gained strong support from the urban
music industry. The customized Miskeen shirts are in high demand
for photo shoots and music video's. Icons such as Jay-Z, The Game,
Diddy and Lebron James have been spotted in the colorful one-of-
a-kind shirts. Today Miskeen Originals employs over 38 hand-paint
artists who work together with a large team of illustrators and graphic
designers to develop unique, fashion forward clothing. Miskeen has
built a strong brand identity and a solid reputation for originality.
Miskeen has gained popularity in the USA as well as Japan,
South America and Europe. n addition to continuous production of
hand-painted gear, Miskeen Originals releases around 10 apparel
collections a year. These sophisticated, urban lines are all inspired by
art. Some are created in collaboration with renowned graffiti and
gallery artists such as Josh Wisdumb and Pinky Taylor. Currently

anticipated Miskeen women's collection! Innovative collections, an
