Product Description

Shibu-uchiwa (branch fans) have been produced by artisans in Kumamoto prefecture, southern Japan for 400 years. They are carefully and respectively handmade from blue ink (seiboku) and persimmon tannin (kakishibu) coated Japanese paper, attached to a bamboo handle. Naturally dyed persimmon tannin adds strength to the paper, while also deterring insects. The natural colour will shift and deepen as it ages.

Various uses include: keeping cool, cooling food during cooking, blowing out candles, and as wall decorations.


Measurements: approximately 36.5cm T x 25cm W (including 13cm handle)

Material: Japanese paper, bamboo, blue ink (seiboku), persimmon tannin (kakishibu)

Comes packaged in a Japan paper cover.

Made in Japan.
