An elegant way to keep yourself cool, these fans are individually woven by hand to our specifications by master artisans in Southeastern Mexico. Ideal as a bridal party accessory, a pretty piece to take to the beach, or even to hang on a wall as art, these gorgeous works are a stunning example of the perfect neutral in a blend of jiipjapa and tropical jabin wood. This particular design features a long handle, wrist loop with tassel, with every piece being one-of-a-kind, due to the handmade process.
The practice of biophilia in design honours the importance of the connection between humans and nature, and the healing effects that it has on our lives. This effort to bring the outside in not only encourages an atmosphere of calm and well being, but also offers the opportunity to live sustainably through carefully selected investment pieces.
This small collective of artisans both grow and cultivate their own monocot plants for their creative process. Jipijapa is a species that is similar to the toquilla palm that is used in Ecuador to create the famed panama hats. This soft, flexible and durable material makes for stunning works of art that are as long-lasting as they are beautiful. Every custom piece is woven in a cave, which the families have on their respective properties, to ensure that they maintain enough cool humidity to work on their weaving projects during any time of the day or year.
The palm fans are approximately 31cm wide without fringe x 28cm tall, including the wooden handle. Every piece features a palm hanging loop with handmade tassel.
