Blinds. Where do they come from? And how have they evolved over the years? Window coverings can be traced back to some of the world’s most ancient societies. Egyptians, used damp strips of cloth as blinds to keep the dirt and sun from entering into their homes. Reeds were also gathered for use as shade and décor within their homes. The Chinese used bamboo products as window treatments and decorations.
