Gentleman wore dressing gowns and matching smoking caps at home and in smoking lounges in the 19th and 20th century. The robes and caps were fashioned in warm and rather heavy, tobacco smoke absorbing fabric such as velvet, quilted silk and wool, often decorated with tassels. Due to the absence of central heating in the 19th century, dressing gowns became a staple of any gentleman's wardrobe and synonymous with comfort, while a smoking cap was the perfect gift to create for fiancé or husband.
Our 19th century inspired velvet dressing gowns and smoking caps are made from a soft and warm black cotton velvet embellished with lightweight silk thread tassels. Velvet is famed for its soft and firm grip, deep colors and warm quality.
This dressing gown features hand-stitched quilted black satin silk details for a traditional look, and its lining is a soft black satin silk.
With a warm velvet outer side and soft silk lining, the tasseled smoking cap adds the finishing touch to the perfect outfit of a chill-out evening or relaxed weekend.
