Silk Habotai, which is better known as “China Silk” is the classic silk fabric that you usually come across. The meaning of the word Habotai is “soft as down”. It is a Japanese word, but is now referred to as China Silk, as most of its production is carried out in China. Sometimes, the material is also called habutae or hautae.
Habotai Is a Great Lining Material
This is a supple and soft fabric with a lustrous sheen, which you will surely love. In fact, Habotai is one of the finest variants of China Silk, as it is lighter and has more lusters. It is lighter than silk charmeuse. The material is sometimes used as a lining fabric. This silk is perfect for lining as it is very comfortable, graceful, breathable, and provides a smooth finish. The garment can slip on and off easily. Habotai will also not add bulk when you use it in lining, which is exactly what you want.
Silk Habotai can also be used in summer blouses, lingerie and bedding. You can also use this high-quality fabric in loose fitting and semi-fitted apparel. Silk Habotai works very well with soft flowing, draped and full styles. It resists snags, wears evenly, and is available in many rich and fun colors.
You will find the best quality Silk Habotai at the Tissura fabric store.
