Dress for success
When President Obama took office I didn’t realize that it would affect my daughter’s wardrobe. Hiho Batik handmade clothing is favored by the Obama girls and has been seen in the pages of People, Star and US magazines. My children have seen the styles all over the television and in my People magazine; they were excited when I was contacted to review Hiho Batik.
My expectations are quite high for clothing for several reasons; I’m not going to tell my loyal base here to buy anything in this economy (okay, at anytime) that isn’t superb. I’m quite frugal and I want all the bang I can get for my buck; I’ll spend more for a quality product and I’ll expect the best for in return.
Hiho Batik’s products are all handmade, that adds to the character. I should say it IS the character. Each one is 100% hand-made and each piece is individually waxed and dyed as original piece of art.
The fabric is 100% cotton, the ones I received were dyed and I washed them separate the first time so they didn’t run. I suggest this due to the nature of the dyes, you can’t be too safe. I found the fabric itself to be of quality and held up well in the washer and dryer. With active kids testing products, the true test is how well the garments hold up. Answer? Amazing!
The styles are unique, so are the designs. You can even have a party at the store and create your own!
When you order, the design may vary a bit as all are handmade.
