Roman Blinds

“Roman blinds” during the reign of Roman Emperor Vespasian were just damp sheets hung on windows to keep heat and dust out of Roman homes. With the Roman summers in the high 90s, a wet and thick sheet for a window barrier was just fitting. Over the ages, the Roman blinds or shades have evolved in terms of materials, designs and technology. However, its usage as a heat and dust protecting sheet for homes (and offices) remains.
