SENSU - folding fan - Handfächer


Japanese summers are often spent in damp humidity. Since long ago, people have gotten through these sometimes unbearable summers with the help of Japanese folding fan "Sensu" (扇子). They can help you to cool down not just by waving and blowing the air, but also by their refreshing cool patterns or transparent material.

 

Sensu are a type of hand fan built from frame of bamboo or wood sticks attached at a single pivot point (called a "kaname"), with paper or cloth attached to the frame. Each process of making is divided into highly specialized tasks, and it is the culmination of expert skills and fine handcrafting. In addition, eye-catching beautiful patterns are also the reason for their popularity as fashion accessories or decoration object. 

 

Here, we introduce many kinds of Japanese hand fans combining traditional and contemporary styles. Hope, you find one of your favorites!
