Silk fan with large flowers. High quality pear wood. Unique hand-painted piece.
Very large flowers that coexist with each other to achieve a harmonious balance. Each one with its own personality covers a good part of the surface as if they demanded to be closely observed. This silk fan can be combined very well with the EXOTIC FLOWERS SCARF, the NIGHT FLOWERS SCARF and the SPRING FLOWERS SCARF.
My inspiration comes from nature, but at the same time fantasy plays a big role, so that the flowers play with many gradient colours.
The fan is an increasingly popular accessory. It is no longer the exclusive preserve of mature women and more and more young girls and men are using it as an accessory.
It is a practical object to fan ourselves in hot weather, but it is also a decorative and collector’s item.
Moreover, it has become a typical gift for the foreign public given our cultural tradition that comes to us from Asia in the 18th century.
This silk fan is made of pear wood, which is highly prized for its quality. In addition, it is a wood that is strong and light, does not weigh and opens and closes very well.
This silk fan with large flowers is a laborious piece to make. First the silk is hand-painted, the colour is fixed at high temperature, washed, then it has to be starched in order to pleat and assemble the rods. And everything is handmade.
