History of Venetian Blinds
Venetian blinds were thought to have originated in Venice, Italy. However contrary to popular thought, Venetian blinds actually originated in Persia. According to a 1941 book by Thomas French, Venetian traders discovered the window blinds in Persia and brought the innovative idea to Venice. Thomas French stated that Venetian slaves granted liberty in the late 1700s brought venetian style blinds to France, creating industry selling window blinds to the French. The French name for window blinds, “Les Persienes,” makes reference to the origins.
