The early Egyptians strung reeds together to form their blinds. The ancient Chinese chose to use bamboo. It’s easy to picture these early blinds shading a mighty pharaoh or craftsman working hard at his trade. They worked well enough – they would have to stick around for thousands of years!

Cadwallader Blinds offer a stylish and modern range of Venetian blinds which can be measured and fitted at affordable prices to suit your taste and enhance your home or office beautifully.

In 1769, an Englishman named Edward Bevan was awarded the first patent for Venetian blinds. He discovered you could place wooden slats in a frame and manipulate the slats to let light into a room. John Hampson of New Orleans adjusted the invention in 1841. He added the ability to change the angle of the horizontal slats, paving the way for the blinds we know and love today.

It’s said that Thomas Jefferson loved blinds. He had every window in every home he owned outfitted with wooden blinds.

Ancient desert civilizations, like the Egyptians, used wetted strips of cloth as window blinds to keep out the dirt and sun. In Persia, Venetian blinds were first used from 1100 AD to 1500 AD. The ancient Chinese created window blinds by tying bamboo stalks together. Window blinds, especially Venetian blinds, did not appear in European culture until the early 1700’s. Although they did not originate in Europe, Venetian blinds emerged near Venice, coining the name ‘Venetian blinds.’ In this modern day you want to find the right type of window blind quickly and easily, taking away the fuss of fitting them yourself.

Window blinds further progressed to different styles. Edward and Frederick Bopp from Kansas City invented and patented the vertical blinds in 1950. Like horizontal Venetian blinds, vertical blinds hang from a track and are adjustable to allow in varying amounts of light. In 1970’s, the 1” aluminium “Mini-Blinds” were introduced.
