Spring 2005 to Today


It was during Jazz Fest in 2005 that Dirty Coast was born. The intention for the brand then is the same as it is practiced today. We create designs that speak to the New Orleans & Gulf Coast experience, state-of-mind, memory and sense of humor.

When the city's federal levee protection failed us 4 years ago we realized that we had an obligation to keep spirits up and pride high. We are the first to admit that the flooding of New Olreans gave our designs more meaning.

Since returning to town a few weeks after Katrina, we have printing and distributed over 1 million free stickers and buttons and donated merchandise to over 20 charities. We still love the reactions we get from our customers and friends with each new design. And we especially love seeing our designs all over the world and to hear the stories you tell of explaining our designs to folks outside the city. We love that you keep supporting our brand. We promise to keep at it for as long as you will have us.

And on this day of all days, remember to be a New Orleanian, wherever you are.


We are looking for your photos to add to our new site.

Upload and attach your photos of your Dirty Coast shirts or stickers to our Flickr Group:

Katrina has to be one of the largest scale disasters I have seen in my lifetime.
