We provide the tools, inspirations and materials for people to create more than clothes, but a way of expressing oneself to the world.

Tell us about your business.

Hiho Batik is an experiential retail store and art space, offering people of all ages one-of-a-kind products, in a mass-produced world. Hiho's wide variety of garments, accessories, and designs are all handmade onsite in our Brooklyn store, using 100% cotton materials. The process leads to the production of soft, durable apparel that is also super fun to wear. In the Hiho Batik art space, our guests create Make-Your-Own Hiho products and participate in DIY classes taught by local artists and craftspeople. If you're in New York City, come visit our new store at 184 5th Avenue in Brooklyn! If not, please enjoy our site.

What makes your business stand out?

Hiho Batik celebrates the creativity of you. Leveraging the ancient practice of batik, each item is handcrafted in our store using wax and dyes to create unique products. Whether your 5 years old or 55 years young, people of all ages have created their own masterpieces to proudly wear, gift or show off. And under the creative direction of our founder, Julia Silver Gordon, we have curate a wide-range of looks as different and unique as the people who love them.
