Finally, I can post this write-up! I’d finished drafting this days ago and was spooked when it didn’t go live. I thought about all the time I had wasted not blogging regularly. I guess I needed this jolt to feel grateful about this great platform to write on and that I should post consistently. Alhamdulilah for blessings in disguise ❤
Switching tracks, I am thrilled to be asked by Hidden Pearls, a UK based modest-wear brand, to review their hijabs. This is my first international collaboration and I couldn’t be more enthused. Alhamdulilah!
They kindly asked me to choose hijabs from their website and I selected two Jersey hijabs in different hues. One a beautiful deep purple and another an exquisite coffee brown shade.
I own a few Maxi hijabs (almost knee-length) in Jersey fabrics, which I use to pray in. They are black in color and are stitched below the chin area for easy wearing. So, I knew what I was choosing when I requested for the Jersey hijabs to be sent.
The scarves that Hidden Pearls sent me are of good breadth and length. They are rectangle in shape and are of the softest high quality fabric.
I like that they don’t slip at all and can be smoothly draped, gathering folds for volume.
I don’t need to wear an under cap or use scarf pins since they sit so well. They drape beautifully and feel almost weightless.
I’d like to call them the ‘no-fuss hijabs’ 😊
I selected the coffee shade since it’s neutral in color and I can wear it over different outfits. Also, it pairs well with my skin tone. It has now become a wardrobe staple hijab for me.
The hijabs have different styles of overlocks and don’t require to be styled in lieu of laces and broad borders. The stretchy material gives sufficient coverage, which is a peculiarity of Jersey hijabs.
Being an international brand, I expected a better packaging design but the scarves arrived in a dismal polythene parcel. This is the only shortcoming I recognized in my collaboration with Hidden Pearls.
I washed both the hijabs by hand using a cloth conditioner. (That’s how I wash all my hijabs and abayas). The color and fabric remain in excellent condition.
The shipping is easy and swift. It takes around a week for the items to arrive after the order is placed. (From UK to India)
I am all for owning a casual wardrobe. The hijabs suit my lifestyle perfectly and are great for subtle outdoor trips.
