This product is made by "Edosensukobo Matsui".
It is a genuine Edo Sensu made by craftsman's hand work.
"Otokomochi" for men is big, and "Onnamochi" for women is made slightly smaller than men 's hands slightly.
The Sensu (folding fan) was invented in Japan, with date ranging from the 6th to 9th centuries. It has very old history.
The Edo Sensu is wide compared with Kyo Sensu (Kyoto's folding fan), the number of bones is also a bit less than Kyo Sensu.
And the biggest difference lies in the production process. Although Kyo Sensu has specialized craftworkers in each process in the division of labor, Edo Sensu will work all over 30 processes by one person.
Very high skills are required, and the number of craftsmen is small, so it is valuable item in Japan as well.
This Edo Sensu is the result of expert technique and experience.
