Luxurious in all the ways a fine silk should be, this habotai is actually limited deadstock from the iconic Toronto designer Lida Baday. Habotai itself is a textile known for its airiness and sheer, shimmering weave: this deadstock's no exception. Its soft, light hand and gentle drape make it a delicate choice for any unstructured project. We suggest using it as an eye-catching lining for a truly special garment, or a delicate, flowy dress. Semi-sheer in lighter colours, it may require a lining (or not, for the daring!)

What can I say? I’m in love with the Silk Habotai for lining. The soft hand and spectacular colours in this Deadstock range so nice. Cyan is a brilliant, happy blue.
Silk Habotai is a fantastic fabric for lining. What an amazing colour to peek out from a jacket. The quality is excellent - the hand and weight are indicative of a well made silk. Love this.
I am very pleased with the fabric.
Stunning deep blue color. Perfect weight & texture for lining.
Beautiful silk with a lovely hand and drape.
