What is "Plisse" - Definition & Explanation

Puckering fabric by adding a chemical that causes them to shrink.
A lightweight, plain weave, fabric, made from cotton, rayon, or acetate, and characterized by a puckered striped effect, usually in the warp direction. The crinkled effect is created through the application of a caustic soda solution, which shrinks the fabric in the areas of the fabric where it is applied. Plisse is similar in appearance to seersucker. End- uses include dresses, shirtings, pajamas, and bedspreads.
Cotton, rayon, and other fabrics that have been treated with a caustic soda solution which shrinks parts of the goods either all over or in stripes giving a blistered effect that is similar to seersucker in appearance. Produced by a wet finishing treatment, this fabric has the look of woven seersucker, similar to crepe. This crinkle may or may not be removed after washing. This depends on the quality of the fabric. It does not need to be ironed, but if a double thickness, such as a hem, needs a little, it should be done after the fabric is thoroughly dry.
A fabric with a crinkied or puckered affect, generally in the direction to the warp, which is created either by tension weaving or through the application of a caustic soda solution which shrinks part of the yarns on the back of the cloth.
A Fabric With A Puckered Or Pleated Effect Resulting From Printing The Fabric With Caustic Soda . The Printed Part Of The Fabric Shrinks, Causing The Unprinted Part To Pucker.
