Why are they called Venetian blinds?
Venetian blinds don’t actually originate from Venice. Shocker, we know.
Surprisingly, Venetian blinds never came from Venice, any more than koala bears are related to the bear family (they’re marsupials like their Australian buddies kangaroos). However, unlike cuddly koala’s, Venetian blinds do have some distinguished history in Venice. So it’s easy to see how they could have earned their namesake – even if it’s incredibly inaccurate.
Where did Venetian blinds originate
Although the early history of Venetian window blinds is mostly conjectural, they are thought to have originated in Persia, not Venice. It is thought that Venetian traders discovered the window coverings through their various trade interactions in the East and brought them back to Venice and Paris. Even now, the French call Venetian blinds “Les Persienes,” and remain loyal to their true place of origin.
