The Irish Examiner article 1:57 A cotton bathrobe by Byron Cotton is one of the few items that has survived from the Victorian era that has endured beyond its original use.
The linen robe was made for a wealthy lady who wore it for a period of six weeks in 1884.
“The linen was dyed in an ordinary linen mill in London and was finished in a style that was quite similar to the cotton bathrobes of the period,” said Dr Anne Murphy, a historian at St Vincent’s College in Co Mayo.
A Victorian textile mill in the city of Brighton, Sussex, was the source of the original linen.
Dr Murphy said that as the robe was worn by a wealthy woman the fabric was often used to make other items.
Its popularity, however, was in part due to its durability.
One source of Cotton’s fame was the cotton thread that was used in the garment, she said.
It was woven from a mixture of different fibres, including wool and linen, and was the fabric of the bodice and the skirt.
In the 1800s the cotton was used for everything from making cloth to textile garments.
But it has been replaced by other fibres over time, such as silk, linen and cotton.
An interesting detail about the linen robe is that it is decorated with silver thread, rather than cotton thread.
Cotton’s silk robe is pictured in this artist’s impression from the 1880s.

His bath towel was made of cotton thread and was made from the linen fabric that was dyed for the linen towel, she explained.
Bath towels were popular at the time, she told the Irish Examiner.
There are a few different types of bath towels.
The one in this illustration is made of linen and the other is made from cotton.
