Seersucker fabric has a characteristic puckered surface. It is usually striped or checked. The threads in seersucker fabric are woven using a special technique to create the crinkled effect. As the fabric is light and airy, seersucker is often used to make summer clothes and bedlinen, although you can in fact use seersucker to make all kinds of garments. The undulating texture means that the fabric does not cling to the body and therefore facilitates good heat regulation.
