Designer Habotai Silk Deadstock - Violet - Swatch

Add To Wishlist

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!)

Care Instructions


Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them.

Fabric Tips

Use a warm iron to press; a press cloth will help prevent 'shine' left from a too hot iron. Silk tends to be a bit shifty so use an extra sharp pair of shears or rotary cutter and pattern weights to cut your fabric.

Perfect crisp lovely saturated color

This is going to be perfect for some very special pajamas! I love it.

Decadent lining

I purchased both the sand and sea green habotai which are both intended as linings. The fabric is definitely lining or lingerie weight, and I’d personally want to fully self line anything intended to be a standalone outer garment- that said it’s exactly what I was hoping for.

Sand is the perfect pale nude colour and will be used to line the bodice of a wedding dress and to sew a slip with the leftovers. The sea green is destined to line a wool skirt as a secret pop of colour.

I’m very pleased with the value of the fabric and can’t wait to sew with it!
