Introducing Hiho Batik
Hiho Batik is one of Daily Mom’s recently-discovered kids clothing brands that is quickly becoming a favorite. This Brooklyn-based company makes all of their clothing in their shop. Each piece of clothing is handmade using a batik method of dyeing fabric and is therefore unique and truly one-of-a-kind.
What Is Batik?
Batik is not merely a technique, but an art. Batik is an ancient method of dyeing fabrics using wax. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot and is an ancient tradition originating in places such as Indonesia, Malaysia, India, and China. Wax is placed on fabric and the fabric is then dyed. The wax is removed leaving a design in the original color of the fabric. The process can be repeated to add more colors and designs.
Vibrant Colors & Edgy Designs by Hiho Batik
All of Hiho Batik’s clothes and accessories include vibrant, rich colors that are perfect for your child’s summer wardrobe. Even the pieces that are predominantly gray are beautiful. But the element that makes each piece stand out is it’s fun design. Hiho Batik‘s designs are at once unique, funky, edgy, and cool.
They sell prints that girls will love and prints that boys will love, and many prints that both girls and boys will love! Check out just a small sampling of their cool designs below:
From critters like crabs and elephants, to robots and rocketships, to flowers, fruit, and candy, you’re sure to find a design your child will love.
All of Hiho Batik’s clothing is handmade from 100% pure cotton. The final product is soft and durable. Because the designs are made with a batik dyeing process, the designs won’t crack with age and wear, like many t-shirts with plastic-y screenprints.
Fun & Versatile Pieces
Hiho Batik’s baby and children’s clothes are versatile, so your child can wear ’em everywhere: from the playground to play groups. Pieces are sold separately, so you can mix-and-match, or just get your favorite pieces.
We love the clouds long sleeve top with matching bottoms for those rainy days spent playing inside, as well as the dot pants that match many of the tops.
We promise you’ll find something you and your child will love, so check out Hiho Batik for spring and summer clothes. And if you live in the NYC area, your child can even make their own designs or have a party in their Brooklyn store!
