Eco-luxury Infant Clothes Design Team: via Hani Hong for Fierce Hugs

Hani Hong is an established graphic designer. With business partner Tina Fusari, she owns and operates Fierce Hugs, Inc. In Virginia. She also happens to own an independent graphic design business.

Hani holds a rich experience in international travel, languages, and the arts. She’s lived in New York City, Washington, DC, Vietnam, Italy, and Santa Monica (California). Her print, graphic design, advertising, and marketing background is fitting for the structure of Fierce Hugs.

Hani and Tina share a passion for art and producing unique infant clothing. The end result of their partnership is an eco-friendly, socially responsible, woman-owned business. They’re also proud to describe their collaborated creations as a non-generic style. But there’s not just one or two designer here.

Like a form of social fashion, independent artists make delightful eclectic images for Fierce Hugs. The partners describe their designs as playfully offbeat and mildly edgy in a fuzzy, baby-safe way. Organic cotton is their material choice and their colors are made from AZO-free low-impact dyes.

Written by Delia Montgomery

I am Delia, d/b/a Chic Eco on, and established myself as an eco fashion guru by learning "who makes what in the world of environmental fashion and design."

Enjoy reading some of my freelance writing about environmental design, fashion and art -- from both consumer and supplier perspectives. You may notice I focus most on individual eco designers, movers and shakers.

From sustainable fashion apparel to paint and flooring, discoveries are a rush. I get my kicks this way. I also offer sales representation of earth-friendly designed products for wholesale buyers. Retailers may take advantage of my services with factory-direct pricing. Spend less time sourcing and prevent green-washed purchases!

My other forte is connecting suppliers with business-to-business tools. Aspects of my business vary with consulting services while I'm proud to be the aide that embraces unique and innovative gigs.

I'm originally a Kentucky Blue Grass gal who relocated to Maui early 2006 and the tropical Puna District of Big Island, Hawaii late 2007. Walk the talk is my motto here.

Early 2009 I constructed a yurt home office in a semi-urban setting on a tiny lot. My water comes from the sky, contained in a catchment that's not likely to dry in this rain forest. The electric is designed for solar conversion. I grow about 30% of my food organically, compost, and recycle to the hilt. Permaculture with a full eco system is my gardening style.

In fact, gardening is my ultimate joy. I seek gigs like design, weeding and planting between other jobs. My love is Hawai'i which has more climate zones than any state. There are frequent earthquakes here, typically under a 3.0 magnitude, and I happen to dig the vibrations. It's a wonderful simple life in paradise. As I grow older and wiser, I become more and more grateful.
