The sensu originated from a round fan called an uchiwa, which was introduced from China over a thousand years ago. The sensu was created by the Japanese who improved the uchiwa.
A folding fan is also called a suehiro, which means that it widens towards the end and therefore symbolizes good fortune and often drawn as a motif of a decoration such as a painting for auspicious occasions.
This is a folding fan with a design of dianthus and a dragonfly. The dragonfly in the design of the fan is called "winning insects" leading to victory because they only fly forward.
Silk and Japanese paper are pasted together on the fan surface, giving it a transparent finish. The Japanese paper is decorated with cutouts.
This folding fan comes with a fan bag with the same pattern and in a paulownia box, so it is recommended as a gift.
