These fans come in your choice of solid Red, Black, Purple or Blue sturdy nylon taffeta fabric. The slats are sturdy black plastic, textured to look like stained bamboo. Each fan measures 24" in width and 13" in height.
Their sturdy construction makes them excellent as fans for cooling off as they are able to move air more efficiently than a regular paper fan. The attractive design makes them a fitting accompaniment for any outfit, modern or period.
There is an interesting article on "Japanese War Fans" on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese-war-fan, which gives information about their historical use. Please remember to come back to The Pillaged Village when you are done reading this article!
