Looks FANtastic

[ From: David Cheng | Published: 2007-11-01 Views: 1046 | Booked times: 56 ]

No one knows exactly how fan came about in China, but most believe that its discovery should be accidental. Although the first fans used feathers, ancient fan-makers eventually used silk and paper as main materials. Eventually, fans began to serve as a decoration in addition to its practical purpose, and thus became more lavishly designed and separated into different styles.

 

This Fan Shop in the Chaoyang district offers patrons a unique opportunity to shop for a variety of beautiful Chinese fans. One popular type is sandalwood fans, which come in various designs such as ¡°Ancient Beauties¡± and ¡°Panda Eating Bamboos¡±. The sandalwood fan presents subtle, fragrant scents, and smells particularly refreshing. However, it¡¯s much more ornamental than practical. Average cost for a middle-size sandalwood fan is around 80 RMBs.

 

In addition, the shop also sells Bamboo and Ivory types of fans. The owner speaks a little English, so communication is not a problem. If you like, he can even let you decorate your own fan.
