About HeliotropeClothing

On Etsy since 2019

Our Origins:

Heliotrope is the seed that sprouted from the mind of a very creative child. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be an artist. Stigma didn't matter to me, I just wanted to create. Although, there was never much support coming my way while growing up. Small towns in rural areas are notorious for not being very nurturing to the creative way of life. I was my only fan for a very long time. But, I didn't give up. I knew one day I'd make my way.
I do not recall a time when I wasn't creating. It didn't matter to me if it was painting, crochet, ceramics, or modeling. I wanted to CREATE. As a child, I would walk my paintings into art centers and ask the people working what they thought. Unsurprisingly, many of them just thought I was "an adorable child" who had "a lot of imagination". Well, now I'm an adult with a lot of imagination.
At 17, I sold my first painting. The feeling was unlike any other. It brought me pure joy to know that something I created brought happiness to someone else. It was a painting to honor a mother's departed child. That piece was eye-opening. I came to understand the emotions that art can bring out; besides being simple beauty and aesthetics.
As most creatives do, I experimented. A lot. The first business I launched was PokedByHand. It was inspired by my love for hand-poked tattoos and the tattoo culture. At the time most of my art was inspired by Sailor Jerry and Ed Hardy, along with a strong Japanese irezumi influence. This era brought on all of my experimental phases. I did a few shows, and tried various styles and materials too. That's what brought me to clothing. I was growing as an artist and as a young adult. I noticed I had already immersed myself in creating clothing; I hadn't started painting on it yet! So that's what I did for a few years, painting shirts, tote bags, and hats. You name it, I have probably painted on it.
And as most businesses do, things changed to fit the growth of both myself and the shop.
In 2022, I waved goodbye to PokedByHand and rebranded as Heliotrope Clothing & Accessories. With this step, I've expanded in different directions creatively. Moving from 'fine art' and decor to clothing design and creation of my designs. Also this year, I was given the opportunity to open a physical location in my city. I am extremely grateful for the support I have received in the past several years.
This journey has been arduous.
But so, so beyond worth it.
And I am very, very excited to see what the future holds.
So, thanks for being here! I can't wait to create for you!
xoxo- Sean

Frequently asked questions

Where do the products ship from?

Northwest Ohio! Think Great Lakes region.

How long do I have to wait for my order?

All of the information regarding how long an order takes to ship is located in the description of each item. Everything is made to order. This ensures that you are receiving the highest quality item(s). Once your order is completed, you'll receive tracking information promptly. Keep an eye on your email (and check the spam folder too just in case.)

Sizing details

Our sizes range from Premie Newborn through 10XL. Our shirts are considered a "unisex" fit, meaning they are not fitted. They are 100% pre-shrunk cotton, so they have some stretch to them. If you would like a specific shirt style, click the 'Request Custom Order" button or message the shop.

Are your handbags genuine leather?

Not unless specified, no. Faux leather benefits you, Heliotrope, and the environment. We respect that many walks of life do not partake in the use of genuine leather. However, if you have a genuine leather bag that you would like painted, or would like a current design on a genuine leather handbag, click the "Request Custom Order" button on the shop's page.

How do I get a custom order?

Click the "Request Custom Order" or message the shop. We will get back to you ASAP.

What if I don't know what I want??

Check our bundles! They are often randomized and entirely unique. You can choose to leave no personalized details. If you do, you will get a message from the shop to confirm you'd like your bundle to remain a surprise.

What type of yarn is used on the crochet clothing?

It depends on the item. Sweaters are made with a soft cotton yarn. Our swim wear and rave style tops are made from nylon (it dries faster and isn't heavy when wet!) Our jelly tops are made from 100% vinyl in the cups and nylon for the straps.
