What is seersucker?

Seersucker is a durable firmly woven fabric with lengthwise puckered stripes alternating with flat ones, and is made by adjusting the yarn tension on the loom. Ordinary tension is applied to some groups of warp yarns and slack tension applied to others. When the fabric is removed from the loom, the tighter yarns relax, causing the slack yarns to pucker permanently. 

Seersucker has a crisp drape. It may be pleated, gathered or shirred into a lofty fullness.
