 Product History

When did these crafts start to craft?:1400 years ago / 600AD / Asuka period in Japan

Folding fans, or "sensu," have a deep-rooted history in Japan, introduced from China in the 6th century during the Asuka period (592-710). Initially exclusive to the aristocracy, they evolved during the Heian period (794-1185) into symbols of status and art, adorned with intricate paintings.
By the Edo period (1603-1868), mass production made fans accessible to all social classes, with diverse designs ranging from practical to highly artistic. Fans gained symbolic significance in rituals, dances, and ceremonies. Despite a decline in everyday use during the Meiji era (1868-1912), traditional folding fans persist as cultural artifacts, revered for their historical importance and artistic craftsmanship in contemporary Japan.
