Rupert & Bird
This eco-friendly reversible towel made from recycled plastic bottles features a beautiful design of handmade fans.
The history of the Chinese fan dates back over 3,000 years. In the ancient times, they were considered fashion accessories. Just like neckties, gentlemen matched fans to their clothes - it was a symbol of status.
Not only are hand held fans meticulously crafted, the paintings on the fans also have great artistic value. The traditional craft of hand made fans is slowly dying in today's modern world.
