Fans play an intricate role in both fashion and society. In Japan, folding hand fans date as far back as the 1600s. The inspiration? The folding wings of a bat. According to historians, Italian women were the first to carry hand fans as fashion accessories. During the 1700s, wealthy women in France and England commissioned artists to paint their fans with intricate patterns and designs. It was during this era that the fan first became a symbol of feminine elegance.
Although fans no longer symbolize gentility, they do add a mysterious air of romance to your look. Whether you're looking for the perfect accessory for that garden party or need the perfect bridesmaid gift for your wedding attendants, Greatlookz.com is your one-stop resource for folding fans.
