Hiho Batik has been one of the more unique business in Park Slope since it opened in September 2012. The kid-oriented boutique and art space is divided into three sections: a shop up front selling clothing and accessories made on-site, a party/ DIY batik space in the middle, and a workshop in the back. And while batik (the art of using wax and dyes to create an image on fabric) is a pretty cool artform, it appears as if there's not enough business to support it: A "For Rent" sign has recently gone up in the front door.
According to LoopNet, the 1,200 square foot space is available for about $7,000/ month, and it's zoned for retail, medical, or dental use (no food). It was listed on Feb 27.
