    Miyawaki Baisen-an

    Preserving the tradition of Japanese folding fans with an innovative approach

    Since its foundation in 1823, Miyawaki Baisen-an has been preserving the tradition of Japanese folding fans.  They were counted as one of the three most important shops that manufactured essential items for traditional Japanese attire along with coronets and the long headgear worn by imperial nobles.  All of the Japanese fans from Miyawaki Baisen-an have an original design and almost all are hand-painted.  They produce new designs annually; some derive from classical Japanese motifs while contemporary artists design others.  Not only the design but also their functionality is excellent: smooth opening/closing, texture, and weight… every element is thoroughly considered.  Exhibiting beauty and functionality, their folding fans are highly recognized and are delivered to the imperial family.
