A Japanese craftsman would dedicate his life
to a specific craft, this one making fans. Neatly assembling meticulously formed components, each fan is a singular creation of beauty to the design painted on its "face." The paper is stitched to bamboo strips. A fan is an ideal gift, symbolizing good wishes and long life. The handle, represents life, the ribs, the direction it takes.
