On the eve of Valentine’s Day, we describe how were born valentines, and show their “soft” examples that if you want you can easily do yourself.
They say that the creation of the first valentine attributed to Duke Charles of Orleans (1415), who was sitting at the time in prison in solitary confinement, and chooses to fight boredom by scriptures own love letters to his wife.
By the sixteenth century writing valentines became widespread. Began to be produced and special trinkets with hearts, Amurchik and other architectural extravagances.
However, until the mid-eighteenth century, the spread of Valentine did not quite live up to “world-class” – stood guard post office. The fact that the postal service at the time could not afford even the middle class. And even worse, (brands did not exist) postage charge a recipient address. Having to pay hard currency for frivolous love letters inevitably kill the nascent feeling.
Fortunately civilization has overcome all the barriers, you can now send SMS or a love declaration of love by e-mail (so they say, and married Bill Gates).
Let’s see some examples and a master class on creating valentines soft fabric.
