Product Review: Dramafree
Dramafree is new, UK-based online store for hijab accessories. They stock a range of pins, clips and corsages. I was recently sent the Ashia clip - Blue Black and the Silky Silver corsage to review.
The items arrived swiftly by first class post. Inside the envelope, the accessories are each attached to a card, with a beautiful dua on the back (just watch out when disposing of these!). The Ashia clip is a simple slide clip, which can be used to secure the edge of your hijab instead of a pin. The design itself is very pretty, without overdoing it on the bling! The gem at the end of the pin is more of a grey-black, and is lighter than appears on the website. The stem is a little stiff to open, and would probably be better for more hard-wearing fabrics.
The Silky Silver corsage is small (5cm diameter), and made of three layers of silvery-grey fabric and a white bead in the centre. It fastens using a simple pin at the back, but I did find this quite small and fiddly to handle. The corsage looks great on a hijab, or on a blazer or cardigan to just add a sweet little touch to your outfit (it's available in 10 different colours).
I love the simplicity and unusual designs at Dramafree (as well as the name!). Their products are different from the generic hijab pins out there, they are affordable and the customer service is great too!
