What is "Plissť" - Definition & Explanation

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. Plissť is similar in appearance to seersucker. End-uses include dresses, shirtings, pajamas, and bedspreads.
