Habu Textiles is a brand with a unique origin. The name "habu" comes from the name of a snake unique to Okinawa. In original characters, "ha" means "wave", and "bu" means "fabric”. The habu snake earned its name because it moves like fabric. Habu a-1 and n-85 tsumugi (tweedy) silk, a-20 silk stainless steel, and n-45/46 nerimaki cotton are currently available in our brick & mortar and coming soon to our web-shop.
