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 Buch clover and Cosmos. Bush clover and cosmos are autumn flowers, but the transparent light blue of the fan makes you feel the coolness of summer.
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.
