James Hare Fabrics

White Silk Habotai

Silk Habotai Fabric White 8134/02 by James Hare is a sheer fabric. It is also known as Jab Silk, China Silk, Pongee or Habutai from the Japanese Habutae, literally ‘feather-two-layer’ and is one of the most basic plain weave silk fabrics. Very popular for silk painting in the use of making stunning scarves and Lingerie.

Traditionally woven in Japan, most habotai is woven in China today. Extensively used as a lining silk but is also used for blouses and lingerie. A lightweight silk fabric, once used mainly for making Kimonos.

Available in a colour palette including neutrals and soft pastel shades like Pale Pink and fashion brights like Fuchsia. French seams are best for finishing Habotai silk garments.
