We searched the world over for the best quality manufacturer for our fans. We tested samples and we knew right away when we had found the best. Not-surprisingly, from China, where the origins of the hand fan culture dates back to 2697 B.C. From the perfect bow of the bamboo that fits just-right in your hand and how it folds tight, the 33 spines, the high-quality of the paper and printing…it was clear this producer understood the fine details that made all the difference. Hugh and his team lovingly hand-make our fans in the Zhejiang province of China and he is a joy to work with. They have been in business for almost 20 years specializing in hand-made pieces. We are so lucky to have found him and are proud of the end-result.
