Sakura which is the national flower of Japan can come in white and also a pretty pink but it only stays for a short while during the spring on the trees of Japan. The Sakura sensu Hand Fan has been handmade with love and care to ensure that it looks and feels the best quality possible. The Sensu fan is the type of Japanese fan that is the folding fan, this fan is used to increase airflow for the purpose of cooling oneself. This product is made from thin material and mounted with slats which enable it to move freely and ensure that the fan can be foldable and portable.
Komaruya has been crafting traditional Japanese fans since the early 900s. The techniques that were used to craft these same fans 1000 years ago have been perfected over time and are still in use today. The Emperor Ōgimachi asked his fan master, Komaruya, to craft Uchiwa to stimulate the economy using the Fukakusa Bamboo that was thriving in that area of Kyoto. Komaruya began exporting Fukakusa Uchiwa for the emperor in 1573 and is recorded as a staple of Japanese Craft History. Komaruya was the first ever producer of Uchiwa in Japan; today, they continue to lead the industry with their incredible quality, techniques, and beauty. Komaruya’s fans are now often displayed as works of art in homes, businesses and traditional temples.
Atelier Japan powerfully encapsulates an ancient
artisanal past that is articulated for the modern.
