These garments were part of the cod fisherman's outfit. Many of the pieces belonging to the Ílhavo Maritime Museum collection were hand-made by the wives, mothers and sisters of the men who were in the cod fishing. In some of the textile specimens found in the museum stocks, the presence of the embroidered monograms is recorded in an attempt to identify pieces that were common in everyone's clothing when they participated in the "larger work". The pieces were donated to the Maritime Museum of Ílhavo in 1990.
