Gill Gear is Here!


Many of you requested, and for the first time ever, Gill gear is here! We printed Gill t-shirts, hats, tote bags, and stickers for the stylish gardener, and we worked with 2 of our favorite Texas artists to make it happen.

We’ve admired Houston artist, Sarah Welch’s work for a while. She’s a fabulous illustrator and nature lover who often includes plants and Texas coastal imagery in her drawings. We asked her to create designs around 2 of our favorite Texas native plants: Turk’s Cap and Blackfoot Daisy. And here’s what she came up with! She even took the time to hand-draw the Gill logo.

For our Passionflower tote bag, we asked Corpus Christi artist, Ashley Thomas to create something surreal and magical like the flower itself. She drew the Zone 9b text and created a halftone photo of a Passionflower for printing on fabric. She also reimagined the Gill logo and repeated the Zone 9b text on our new hats and bumper stickers! Ashley has a special connection to Gill’s – she’s a gardener and she’s married to Gill’s owner, Jesse Jenkins. She helps out with a lot of design projects here at Gill’s behind the scenes.
