SENSU - folding fan - Handfächer

Japanese summers are often spent in damp humidity. Since long ago, Japanese people have gotten through these sometimes unbearable summers with the help of "Sensu (Japanese folding fans)". 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 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. Sensu made by Japanese craftsmen, on the other hand, fold perfectly with a nice, sharp sound.

Eye-catching Japanese beautiful patterns also make them as fashion accessories or decoration object.


◆ Sensu Craftsmanship
Sensu are handcrafted by skilled artisans. Each process is divided into highly specialized tasks and Sensu are the culmination of expert skills and fine handcrafting.
Sensu were first crafted in Kyoto, which was Japan's imperial capital during Heian period. Nowadays, other cities also developed and spread its own traditional Sensu throughout Japan. To preserve the craft Japanese has inherited for generations, artisan still craft Sensu. They also incorporate contemporary styles into orders from fashion designers and younger customers and collaborate with young artists.


◆ Add a touch of elegance with a delicate fragrance

Sensu fans can also be enjoyed for their scent. Scented woods such as sandalwood or Japanese cypress release a delicate fragrance when you fan yourself. We also recommend adding your favorite scent by storing your fan with some incense or spraying it with a little perfume.
