What we're all about

Heavy Petal makes band tees — but instead of bands, plants.

Our soft graphic tees turn up the vibe of a houseplant or garden plant until you're like, 80 percent sure you saw them that one time at the 9:30 Club. Then we add a soft, vintage, wildly comfortable feel. So you can ~*~rock~*~ your favorite horticulture everywhere you go.

More t-shirts are coming soon. Our next music/plant combos will be certified bangers, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter.

We launched in October 2022 and are a women-owned small business. We live, garden and jam in Southern California.

All our tees are made in the USA.
