The history of indoor blinds

Back in the day, the earliest account of indoor blinds was used by civilizations in African and Asian deserts. These individuals required basic sheets in order to block out oncoming elements from entering inside which in their case was from the desert sun. They were previously used for a variety of different purposes including safety, shelter, and keeping the family cool from the heat.
In Ancient Egypt, reeds from the Nile River were made as a sun shield and fan, to keep them cool during the humid conditions. Ancient China enjoyed creating their shadings with bamboo and still at this very moment, it is a material people use to make indoor blinds today.

Indoor curtains made their way to Europe through the Persians. People in trading ships have showcased the style of Eastern art to Venice which is where Venetian shading was invented. By the 18th century, these window dressings travelled to Paris and London. With the rise of the industrial revolution, it became a popular shading choice across Europe. It is still one of the most common types of window coverings still used today.

During the 20th century, there has been a range of different developments with more and more different styles populating in the sphere.
