The history of Venetian blinds goes all the way back to ancient Persian society. From here they were traded out to the West, to Venice and Paris where their name originates. Though the french still name the popular blinds by their Persian origin.
The United States then got a hold of them all the way back in the 1700’s where they became popular window dressings in government and public offices. Over a hundred years later the entire empire state building had its windows covered with venetian blinds, one of the largest venetian blind orders in history!
Venetian blinds were originally built from wood but later in history they were manufactured from aluminum and faux wood. Both these new materials being more lightweight and cheaper to produce than the original real wooden venetian blind option.
