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.
The main bone of this fan is decorated with gold maki-e (Lacquer painting), which gives it a luxurious feel. This folding fan comes with a fan bag with the same pattern and in a paulownia box, so it is recommended as a gift.
