It’s Off To Shop We Go
Hiho Batik opens in Park Slope
Brooklyn snubbers may finally have to cross the bridge for this one: Hiho Batik has hung a shingle in Park Slope. Known for making 70’s-style batik cool again for this generation, Hiho Batik stocks onesies, big-kid clothes, accessories, and even some grownup gear—all featuring the brand’s colorful waxed-and-dyed graphics. (They tell us the bunnies-over-the-rainbow and arrow designs are best sellers for the sippy cup crowd this fall). Beyond shopping the racks, you can also drop by the store any time (with or without your wee ones) to make your own batik items. There’s a studio area with Hiho’s signature graphic templates (cupcakes, robots), which can be applied to tees ($40), infant caps ($20), long-sleeve shirts ($45), and other pieces. Super fun for tots. Speaking of fun, they throw two-hour batiking-themed birthday parties as well.
