Slaghuis is a revolutionary Hip Hop movement birthed ten years ago on the 23rd of November 2003, the vision was to start a movement where Hip Hop Heads could come together to live and love Hip Hop as a community.

Since 2003 to date the Slaghuis movement has successfully paved ways for a number of artists in the Hip Hop music industry such as Pitch Black Afro, Pro kid, Maggz, Molly, F eezy, Siyashezi and 985. Some of the mainstream Artists who have stepped on the revolutionary stage to bless the Slaghuis masses include; Teargas, Slikour, Kuli Chana, Reason, Flabba, Zeus, Proverb, Kwesta & Deep Level just to name a few.

Slaghuis has just finished a documentary titled BEST OF DECADE about the past, the present & the future of South African Hip Hop featuring Artists mentioned above. The DVD will be hittin the Mzantsi Hip Hop scene in 2014 so keep your ears to the street...JAYEEIH!!

Why the name “Butan’:

B-U-T-A-N is simply a re-arrangement of letters of the word B-A-N-T-U.

The brand name pays homage to our roots and heritage while the re-arrangement of the letters signifies a changed, entirely new mind set and outlook on life in contemporary South Africa. It is this fusion between cultural heritage and the present day experience that creates the unique look and feel of the brand.

Why 1981: Most of our garments make reference to the year 1981. Contrary to popular belief 1981 is not the year the brand was established but actually the year the founder of Butan was born.

Brand Philosophy:
Butan Wear is deeply entrenched in the urban lifestyle and vibrant underground culture of South Africa’s streets. Key to the brand’s identity is the inventive approach to fashion, which produces highly concept driven designs that epitomize our cosmopolitan roots. Butan is more than just a clothing label, it’s an integral part of street culture.It strives to spread relevant messages and open avenues for alternative perception of our world through innovative design.The brand represents the rich tapestry of the African continent, paying tribute to its influence on contemporary African youth. Every garment is the manifestation of the ideas and aspirations of our generation, our infinite potential and our heritage.

Brand History:
Butan has been commercially available since early 2006 but has its humble beginnings in 2001 when Julian, the founder of the brand, printed 20 tees for his school mates with a simple design he had sketched in his black book. Julian went on to study engineering, but uninspired by the engineering field and fueled by the passion for design and street wear, he decided to start his own street wear brand after finishing his degree.

With only R2000 to play with the brand was carefully built by putting every cent back into the business. Every aspect of the business is self taught and it’s been a journey full of obstacles and surprises.”The cheapest learning you will ever do is in school’ But perseverance and holding onto his dream has paid off. Butan is now fast becoming one of the biggest street wear labels in South Africa and there is no stopping us now.
