Assalaamu alaikum sisters (=
Wow subhanAllah been such a long time since I blogged...lots going on at the moment which is why I've been a bit AWOL, inshaAllah I will update you guys soon =D
So I recently came across a new hijab company on Facebook through a friend of mine and they kindly sent me 2 scarves to write a review on...to check out their page just click here
Todays model is my little neighbour Zara, mashAllah she did a great job smiling and making these lovely hijabs look extra pretty (=
I was sent a scarf from their medium section and one from their maxi section.
First up the maxi hijab! 'Black Lace'
Width: 104cm, Length: 192cm
I love the print on this hijab, the lace effect print is very elegant/vintage while the polka dots add youthfulness and give it a playful look. As you can see the hijab is slightly sheer so you will need to fold it and once you've wrapped it you will be completely covered. The size of the hijab allows generous coverage and there is more than enough fabric to create lots of folds and volume. At times I did feel the width of the hijab was a little over generous as I don't like creating lots of folds on my head, but you can always fold the entire hijab in half or even fold it to turn it into a square scarf if you prefer.
The meduim hijab...'Vintage Rose (Grey)'
Width: 78cm, Length: 180cm
I'm totally in love with this hijab, so much so that it has become my 'go to' scarf of the summer. Majority of the scarves I have seen on the market online and offline these days are maxi scarves and I was beginning to miss my regular sized hijabs, I started to forget how easy and comfortable they are to wear. If you don't want to do anything fancy with your hijab and just need something to put on, drape round and dash out the door then this hijab is for you! It's completely opaque and I have worn it without an underscarf on days it's been really hot and it hasn't been a problem, enough coverage, will allow you to create some volume but obviously not as much as your maxi hijabs. The pattern is lovely, its a very English summer, little women, delicate, victorian'esque' look, which I adore!
There are a few different colours in this scarf and I chose this one because I thought the colours worked really well together. This hijab is much softer than the maxi hijab above and a lot more comfortable to wear.
At the moment the range of hijabs on the page is fairly small but they are a new company so inshaAllah they will be getting new things in the future. They are also selling hijab accessories like this vintage pearl hijab accessory which I think would look stunning for bridal wear, it has two long pins on either end of the chain which you simple weave in and out of your scarf and underscarf.
Strictly hijabz are only selling to UK customers at the moment and for customers in West London (or willing to travel to West London) you can arrange to view the hijabs that you want as well as arrange a pick up, which will save you money on postage & packaging.
I never directly spoke to the owners of the company but from feedback from other customers on their facebook page it looks like their customer service isn't too bad either.
You can place your order through facebook or even via whatsapp on 07949922738 or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
You can pay via paypal or bank transfer and hey presto! (=
So thats it for now, I wish the company loads of success, inshaAllah we will be seeing more new and exciting products from them.
Wassalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh!
