How many times do we have to say it. Don't touch me. Unless I say so, of course. If that's the rule I give you, that's the rule you follow.

Don't force me to kiss or hug goodbye a relative I barely know. Don't ask to touch my hair. Don't touch my knee when you're talking to me. Don't squeeze parts of my body you wish you could change.

Just don't touch me? Got it? Good.

UNLESS I say so, of course. Then listen to how I want to be touched, where, when, and how.

Touch is my love language. A beginner might think that means I want to be touched lots & lots by whoever crosses my path, but that couldn't be further away from the truth.

Touch is sacred to me because of how many times trust + touch have been broken in my lifetime. Touch is my love language because if it's done right, it could drown me in an ocean of happiness, comfort and safety.

Check-in with your cuddle pals, check-in with your partner, heck check-in with anyone you like to be physically close to in any shape or form. Maybe the type of touch is fine, but have you ever asked what you could do differently to make it feel ASTRONOMICAL? Maybe it's lighter, harder or not at all.

Be aware of how you might be ignoring your needs and boundaries and those of someone else. Consent goes beyond an enthusiastic yes. Consent is deeply connected to every moment of interacting with someone. So pay attention.

radical transparency
meet jill & sarah
founders of om

Jill Davis (right) and Sarah Vezina (left) are two best friends from small town Dalhousie, New Brunswick. They grew up in the same neighbourhood, took the same bus, had the same babysitter and even rode on the same bike (because Sarah couldn't afford her own). Their inseparability and toxic dependency lasted through adulthood where they quit their corporate jobs to work with each other instead. Given that no one can tell them apart, it's clear that Octopied Mind has been founded on the melting and merging of their brain power, creativity and essence - All of which are used to produce the strange and vulnerable graphic art you see today.

raw edge cropping
custom lengths

A raw-edge crop method is done with a rotary tool. This tool makes a clean cut and allows the fabric to roll up slightly over time. We do not fold over the material and sew it once it has been cut to prevent rolling unless otherwise stated. We also do not recommend you cut your own shirts at home (especially with scissors) unless we've given you proper guidance on how to do so.
