This high-quality, handcrafted fan is made in the popular uchiwa style, distinctive for its rounded shape. The creation of a single fan by expert craft workers can take up to 14 months and involve some 20 stages. Many of the stages are completed by separate artisans who focus on just one specific area, such as splitting the wood into ribs, producing the decorative paper, stretching and setting the paper, and cutting the fan into shape. This approach ensures every element of the fan is made with absolute care and precision.
