Seersucker is a cotton fabric with a name deriving from the Persian term “shir o shakar", which means milk and sugar.
This fabric is made by what is called a slack-tension weave, where groups of yarn are bunched together in certain portions of the fabric to create a puckered, almost wrinkled look. In fact, it’s usually unnecessary to iron seersucker garments because they are supposed to look slightly wrinkly. The puckering effect of the weave creates a wonderful feature in the shirts.
