Silk habotai, sometimes spelt habutai, also known as pongee or paj are the silk painter's staples. We offer these fabrics in a range of weights from 5mm to 16mm and in various widths. The most popular weights for silk painters are Pongee 5 (light weight) and habotai 8 (medium weight). The lighter weights (generally <8mm) are economic enough to be used in school and for beginners, but the fabric may slip when sewn, so best for scarves, rather than garments.
