Greetings from the Director

Ishizumi & Co. is probably the only fan maker in the world which creates and distributes decorative art fans of a very high quality for art collectors and museums.

Historically Ishizumi Fans have been used and enjoyed by ladies of high society in Europe and America.

Ishizumi fans are exquisite products of art applying both the finest painting on the fan leaf, and craftsmanship of the fan body. Ishizumi fans are decorative and therefore best displayed in a frame on a wall, or on a table top in a fan-stand.

Ishizumi & Co., since its establishment in 1881, has not engaged in manufacturing fans for mere souvenir buyers or for daily usage.

For hundreds of years we have prided ourselves on perfect customer care and maintenance for our Japanese Fans.

We hope you will enjoy the beauty of Ishizumi fans for generation after generation.

The following pictures show examples of how fans are used and displayed as art, given as a precious gift or used for decorative purposes (the fans shown are not Ishizumi fans)
