Japan's Traditional Cultural Craft – the Sensu (folding fan)
The sensu, or folding fan, is a uniquely Japanese design with a history dating back about 1200 years, and was popular with the Heian Period nobility. It was considered a valuable accessory, that was made of different materials depending on the season, or had poetry or various scents dyed into them to be used as love notes. They eventually found their way to China, and then Europe, where they were treasured by the aristocracy in the west.
