About Irish Poplin
When the Huguenots brought their silk weaving craft to Ireland in the 1600s, they introduced a high quality local wool to their silk warps thus creating Irish Poplin. The name Poplin itself is derived from the French "Papelin" or "Lin du Pape", a pure silk cloth used in robes when there was a papal seat in Avignon, France.
In 1820 Richard Atkinson, the then Lord Mayor of Dublin, asked a group of weavers to make their Irish poplin for his shop. By 1837, Mr. Atkinson's Irish poplin fabric was so popular that Queen Victoria granted Atkinsons a Royal Warrant.
