Japanese hand fans, especially the folding fans, are easily cherished as an Asian masterpiece, a work of art, and gift for all occasions as not only do they represent the first folding fans ever made in history, they also flaunt exquisite craftsmanship and stylish versatility.
While coming in different types, Japanese fans are, basically, a collective effort of Japanese hand fan artisans, who carefully select the materials for their ribs and craft them into hand fan frames, and hand fan artists, who create the beautiful designs on their leaf or front.
The Folding fan is usually made from bamboo, wood, or sandalwood to make for the hand fans' ribs. More common is the bamboo which is picked usually according to their age and pliability for easy carving and craftsmanship. Bamboo is then shaved to reveal the creamy-white colour of its wood and it is then cut to the length, thinness, shape, and size of the folding fans' ribs, and then smoothed to prepare them for carving.
Today, carving machines and carved hand fan ribs of different patterns that serve as design templates are available to make the designing and carving of the ribs fast, uniform, and easy.
