KUBA Uchiwa ( Palm Fan)

Fan made from Kuba, a palm plant native to Okinawa which has been an integral part of people's lives for centuries. Rich in oil, possessing antibacterial properties, and resistant to decay, Kuba is a versatile material used in various aspects of daily life, from building walls and roofs for homes to crafting fans, wrapping pots for boiling water, and more.

*Due to the use of natural materials, each piece is unique, varying in shape and size (including sections with natural indentations, which are not considered defects).
