In the 19th century the colour green was extremely fashionable. Dyes which produced this colour almost always contained a large amount of arsenic. These dyes were applied to furnishings and clothes, particularly lady’s dresses. As a result many people died by unknowingly inhaling the poison from their home furnishings or absorbing it into their skin from their clothes.
