Making clothes was a costly and time consuming process so wardrobes and linen presses were used to help store and preserve the quality of our clothes. In fact the word ‘wardrobe’ derives from the words warder, meaning “to protect”, and robe, meaning a “piece of clothing,”. Although wardrobes are now a common place within homes, linen presses are no longer usually used for their functionality but more as a decorative antique.
