Folding Fans

Stay cool while being eco-friendly with Japanese style

Japanese folding fans create a breeze for cooling down. Thin and long strips made of bamboo are riveted together at the end and covered with paper or cloth.

The fan is opened and closed by sliding it left and right. It is compact when closed, making it easy to carry. When there is harsh sunlight it can also be used for shade. Try adding a little perfume for a scented fan. The shape of an open fan is known as “suehirogari” in Japan, which means that it widens towards the end. This symbolizes development, prosperity and good fortune.
