When it comes to making a sensu, the starting point is the ribs of the fan, from there creating the special paper used for the fans, folding them perfectly, adding the paper to the fan ribs and so on, each process is divided among the appropriate craftsmen, with each craftsman using a special traditional technique to bring the fan to complete.

Each one made by hand by amazing craftsmen!
