- WHO MADE YOUR FAN?
Our range of colourful Ghanaian wax cotton fans are expertly handmade for us by Joseph, also known as Kalala, a friendly local who runs a small business making fabric fans.
The fans were inspired and influenced by the folding fans from Asia, using beautiful African wax cotton prints to design some decorative and practical pieces.
