I sell the elements you will need to make your own fans: sticks, leaves, replacement rivets and U rings. You will need at least two of these to make one, a set of fan sticks and a leaf. Fancy replacement rivets and U rings are not necessary. In fact U rings don’t seem to show up on fans until about the 1850s. When you are ordering make sure that you order at least a set of sticks and a leaf. If you already have a set of sticks send an e-mail with the measurements of your sticks so I can let you know if your sticks will work with my leaves.

Many of the leaves I have are printed on 100% cotton paper or 100% silk taffeta but some are only printed on the paper and some designs come printed with different color backgrounds or on colored silk.

Shipping: please note that the shipping charges that show up are usually spot on for small orders but, if you are ordering the makings for two or more fans it might calculate too much. Please note that I refund excess shipping fees.

International orders: The shipping charges are set for US I will contact you with the postage to your address and invoice you.

Sticks:

Sad to say but it looks like I will be loosing my source for these bamboo sticks. I’m looking for another source but until I do I’m limiting the # of Natural sticks to one per customer. Right now I have more of the black so I will not have to limit those. The black sticks work well on all paper leaves and if you paint the ribs where the leave will be glued a light color, the black ones work well with the silk as well. If you have any questions please ask.

This type of sticks come in black and natural. I recommend the natural for most silk fans because the black can show thru the silk. They are  ~10.5″ long and have 12 ribs.


Bamboo Fan Sticks



 

This type of stick is for the Regency Style Fans. ~9″ long and have 14 ribs.


Wood Fan Sticks



 

These sticks are 1/2 and 1/2 and have a replacement rivet already installed. Either a clear crystal or a silver rondelle on the black side and a gold on the natural side.
