Seersucker was first introduced to the western world through British colonies in the late 19th century. It was written as Sirsakar in Hindi, which means Milk and Sugar. Soon, it’s brought into the United States by colonial trader and became popular. At first, seersucker was made for workwear. Until the early 20th century, different products began to appear in menswear. It was worn by workers in factories and celebrities who took it to high-end places. This is an important evolution of seersucker development.
Seersucker is a thin, light and puckered textile fabric. It is the best summer choice for gentlemen's suit fabrics due to its lightweight and breathable characteristics. If you have ever been up close and personal with seersucker, you’ll notice that it is woven in such a way that some of the threads bunch together to give the fabric a wrinkled appearance and texture. It allows the fabric to be held mostly away from the skin when worn, allowing air to circulate. Even at high temperatures, it remains comfortable and elegant.

How are these masks sustainable?
Well, initially we have purchased the fabric with the intentions of making a new Kaffetech polo. When the pandemic hit, we saw there is a more immediate need for face masks, and thus, we made face mask covers.
