Seersucker is a lightweight fabric that is usually made in 100% cotton, however, it can also be found in blended fabrics. It has a puckered texture that is typically striped, but also checked, that is traditionally used to make clothing for warm or hot weather. The word came to the English language from Hindustani (Urdu and Hindi), which comes from the Persian words "shir o shekar," meaning "milk and sugar," most likely comparing the fabrics alternating soft and coarse stripes to the contrasting textures of milk, being smooth, and sugar, being coarse.
A weaving process called slack-tension is used to create the distinctive characteristics of seersucker. The tension on several of the warp yarns are held tighter than others which result in a crinkled striped fabric which allows the fabric to be away from the skin when worn, allowing for easier air flow keeping the wearer cool since the warm air is not trapped close to the skin. In addition, the fabric is comfortable, easy to wash and requires little or no ironing.
Typical garments made from seersucker are yoga pants, summer suits, '/>"/>
