Folding Fans, made of pleated paper, were a Japanese invention and were carried by both men and women. They reached incredible levels of decorative sophistication, incorporating gold leaf and inlaid mother of pearl into many of the designs. We have included a wide range of sizes and decorative styles in this collection.
