The History of Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds may have originated in Persia, not the canal city of Venice, Italy. Or, they may date all the way back to ancient Egypt. Wherever their birthplace, the Venetian blinds have served as decorative alternatives to curtains for nearly three centuries. They have undergone some style updates through the years--most notably the creation of the mini blind--but the basic concept of an adjustable array of horizontal slats remains unchanged.
