Salam Haute Hijab Fam,

I hope you are doing well! I'm reaching out to let you know about a small (but important) change we're making to our packaging. Starting this week, we will no longer pack our hijab bundles in gift boxes. This decision was driven by an effort to streamline packaging and reduce waste.

In our ongoing work to bring you more sustainably-produced hijabs and products, we know that the journey not only involves partnering with vendors and manufacturers invested in sustainability efforts and investing in more eco-friendly fabrics and materials, but also finding closed-loop solutions in manufacturing processes and reducing the waste we put into our landfills (like our sourcing of deadstock fabric for our Tuesday Drop Chiffon Prints).
In fact, packaging waste accounts for 40 percent of all solid waste in municipal waste streams, according to the EPA, with about 37 million tons of packaging waste finding its way into landfills every year. Too many cardboard boxes end up in landfills, and we need to do our part to reduce waste.

If you'd still like a gift box, don't worry — they will be available for purchase when you order a hijab set. To add a box to your order, just select the gift wrapping option when you finalize your cart and you'll see it appear as an additional item at checkout.

We are super excited about this latest step in streamlining our hijab production from where they begin to how they end up in your hands and are worn by you!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to reach out any time to hello@hautehijab.com.

With love & gratitude,
