A Quick History of Pictures

BENEFITS OF USING PHOTO BLANKETS.

Photo sheets offer a nice way of remembering yesterday’s events and enjoying today’s moments. They also enable our children to know who we were and the journey we have taken to reach where we are. After posting our photos on social media platforms our digital memories get stored in those sites. A beautifully woven blanket turns those memories into wonderful art.

Photo blankets can show off a group of photos just like the olden scrapbooks. Photos of family weddings, anniversaries and birthday images can be woven into a photo blanket. You can hang it on the wall, or place it on the couch or on a bed. A picture blanket will keep you warm and happy.Don’t allow your photos to waste away online or shoe hoe boxes. Find photos and memories you want to remember and make a photo blanket.

Long ago, photo blankets were made of thick clothing showing people, objects, and symbols to tell a story or reveal past events. For many years ago, people used blankets as a form of communication through storytelling, honoring dead, and a well-respected form of art. Modern photo blankets have changed to modern techniques and more efficient, but the primary meaning has not changed much. Photos are shown to represent memories ad reveal history.

Photo blankets can also be used as gifts to be given away and received between friends. They can also be used to decorate homes on furniture coverings and as decorative display of a design or photograph. You can give photo blankets to couples or individuals as wedding, birthday, Christmas, baby or anniversary gifts.

The main types of photo blankets are woven, knitted and dyed photo blankets. Woven photo blankets are made using digital software that scans a picture, creates a pattern and then creates a woven picture blanket using various colored yams. An afghan photo blanket and a tapestry photo blanket are the two varieties of a woven photo blanket. A tapestry photo blanket is made with a yam of two different diameters while the yam used in the weave of an afghan photo blanket is the same width in both horizontal and vertical directions.

A knitted photo blanket is made using a machine that uses the same scanning process and pattern process by knitting the yams together in a looping technique. Many Knitted photo blankets consist of limited colors caused by the knitting process and the continuous thread forming loops in the process.

The the newest type of photo blanket is the dyed photo quilt which is made by printing dye onto fabric from a digital photo. This the type has the sharpest clarity and gives room for unlimited colors.
