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. We post our photos on social media and those sites store our digital memories. Those memories are turned into fantastic art by a beautifully woven blanket.

Historically, photo blankets used to tell a story or reveal past events and were made of thick cloth which had images of people, objects and symbols. Long ago, people used blankets as a method of communication through storytelling, honoring dead, and it was a respected form of art. Despite the fact that modern photo blankets have changed to modern techniques, the primary meaning has not changed much. Photos are shown to represent memories ad reveal history.
Photo blankets can also be given and received as gifts. 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 three main types of photo blankets are woven photo blankets, knitted photo blankets, 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 yarns. An afghan photo blanket and a tapestry photo blanket are the two varieties of a woven photo blanket. The difference between the Afghan photo blanket and the tapestry photo blanket is that the yam used in an Afghan photo blanket is the same width in both horizontal and vertical directions while a tapestry photo blanket is made with a yam of two different diameters.
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. Most photo blankets are made up of limited colors caused by the knitting process and the continuous thread forming loops in the process.
A dyed photo blanket is the most recent type of photo blanket and is made by printing dye onto fabric from a digital photo. This the type has the sharpest clarity and gives room for unlimited colors.
