About Marugame Uchiwa:
As the largest Japanese Uchiwa fan producer, it has been recognized for its production capacity and various designs since the Edo period. The red emblem on the package is a proof that the Uchiwa fan has been handmade in Japan, which is certified by the Kagawa Prefecture Uchiwa Cooperative Association. In 1997, Marugame Uchiwa fans were registered as Japanese Traditional Crafts by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
Materials: Bamboo / Japanese Paper
