Open:10"x 16" [25.4cm x 40.6cm]

~ Made of all recycled material: paper, bamboo, cotton fabric, and soy inks.

~ All of the cherry blossoms are hand cut and dyed.

~ Choose from three colors for the flowers; rose-pink (displayed), lavender or light yellow.

~ Comes with a reclaimed fabric storage bag embroidered with swirly/flower patter, as seen in photos.

~ These fans are hand assembled. This means all aspects, from the fan to the branches and flowers. Because of this, no two fans are alike. While each fan has the same number of branches and flowers on it, the placement of these can vary slightly from one to the next. This adds character and beauty to a these fans.
