Seersucker fabric

airy, porous, lightweight fabric, with a characteristic vertical, uneven stripe or check grouped to produce a crinkled effect; in linen weave from medium-fine worsted yarns. Its relief effect is achieved by means of different tautnesses of the warp threads from two rollers. When cotton or flaxen fabrics are used, the same effect is achieved by the action of a caustic soda solution, causing shrinkage at given places in the fabric. Used for ladies' summer dresses, blouses and skirts. The name is given by the Persian "shirushakar" (= crouching, vesicular).
