there is a big difference from the seersucker woven in italy and seersucker woven in asiathe italians are still weaving with better cotton
I looked at that collection.again, I do not remember if it came washed or raw.i do not have anything that shade.I have a customer who wants that as well.I might try to bleach the fabric again.you are welcome to buy a shirt length and mess around with it. the fabric is good quality from italy,if you go to the garment district. look in the cheap no name fabric stores as well
