Empowerment in every stitch.

made with purpose

We launched Octopied Mind in 2018 with a dream of helping people live happier, more fulfilling lives by freeing the mind that is occupied by negative beliefs about oneself. Our vision to create a community built on acceptance and radical self-responsibility has been made possible through combining original art with meaningful conversation.

From the cult


The design is spectacular and the quality lives up to it! You know when you order something and when it arrives you’re super disappointed? That’s happened to me more often than not so I was OVER THE MOON HAPPY when the shirt came and it was beyond my expectations. I bought it as a gift and I’m SO excited I don’t know if I’ll be able to wait for their birthday… I want them to see it right now! Will DEFINITELY shop here again (and again and again).

I just got mine and I am in love! The design is amazing and the shirt quality is perfect. The material is comfortable and great to the touch. Absolutely LOVE IT!!!

Love this shirt. I’m obsessed with the designs/artwork on all of the shirts. I got the hemmed length and love where it hits on my body. I got the XL which gives me plenty of room (5’4” 180lbs). Highly recommend! This will be my new go-to shirt

I wanted to wait to leave a review until I got a few washes and wears into the piece. So here goes; I adore this sweater. it is soft, not too warm but not too thin. Feels like quality but of course the design is why I bought it. I wanted oversized so I followed the advice for sweaters and went with a small. I am typically a small in sweaters and buy medium when I want an oversized fit. I am definitely glad I chose the small for oversized. I am 5'4” and 129lbs and it falls just below my bum and the sleeves are the perfect length to just cover some of my hands. Thanks OM, I can't wait for my next purchases (the SO bought me something and I just can't wait to see what is coming).

the meaning of
octopied mind

"Octopied Mind" is a play on the words "occupied mind" - a mind that is occupied with chaotic and unhelpful beliefs that prevent you from experiencing how badass you are.

Our trademark logo and brand name was born from our very first design - A third eye, geometric octopus inspired by a love for ocean documentaries, clever puns and psychedelic substances.

Everything we sell is made with purpose. From our ultra soft products to our mind-bending designs and vulnerable story-telling, we want to help you connect to yourself, to the people around you & to the universe at large.
