Originating from India, seersucker is recognizable by its waffle texture which removes the fabric from the skin, allowing air to circulate more easily. This wavy look is achieved by weaving a taut weft yarn and a looser warp yarn.
The term seersucker comes from the Persian words “shîr” and “shakar”, meaning respectively milk and sugar. The milk symbolizes the smooth parts of the fabric while the sugar symbolizes the rough parts.
Traditionally made of cotton, we are offering this season several pieces in wool seersucker, with a noble aspect and high breathability, due to the very nature of its fiber. This fabric is a small feat in itself as it is very rare to find seersucker in purely natural fibers, especially wool. It comes from a century-old Italian weaver based in Bielle, in northern Italy, that is very committed to natural materials and to social and environmental responsibility.
Wool seersucker is available in our Edition 20 in four pieces: a two-pocket overshirt, a completely unstructured travel jacket, drawstring trousers and a pleated bermuda shorts.
