What is SEERSUCKER?
A fabric usually a narrow striped cotton with alternate stripes crinkled in the weaving that has a Crepe-stripe effect. Colored stripes are often used alternating with white. The fabric has a matte surface. Seersucker comes in light, and medium to heavy weights. The woven crinkle is produced by alternating slack and tight yarns in the warp. This effect is permanent. Some seersucker cloths may be produced by pressing/ironing or a chemical treatment, which is unlikely to be permanent.
Seersucker is also called plisse. It is Durable, gives good service and wear and especially excellent for very hot summers. It can be laundered without having to iron. Essentially it is wrinkle resistant by nature. It can also be bleached, yarn dyed, or printed. Some seersuckers come in a check or plaid effect as well. Seersucker has many uses: Summer suits for men, women, and children, coats, uniforms, trims, nightwear, all kinds of sportswear, dresses, blouses, children´s wear of all kinds, curtains, bedspreads, slipcovers etc.
