Kurikawa Shoten's Shibu Uchiwa


The production of Kutami Uchiwa began in 1600. A traveling priest from Marugame City, a city famous for uchiwa, initiated people in Kutami City into the production method of uchiwa, in return for letting him stay a night at the city.

The uchiwa is coated with persimmon tannin, which makes its Japanese traditional paper (washi) strong and long-lasting, while also having an effect of insect proofing. Shibu Uchiwa can only be produced by Kutami, a word that means "people come," and thus, believed to lead people to have thriving businesses, which is why their uchiwa served as a lucky charm and often used as gifts.

Kurikawa Shoten is the only workshop that inherits the tradition of Kutami City, a city that was counted one of the three greatest production areas of uchiwa in Japan, other than Kyoto and Marugame City.




Reviews

This is my second time to order the hand fan, this time I order as present to my friend.

I am happy with all the products that I order, please continue to bring in traditional Japanese hand-made items to your website. I like to use Japanese Uchiwa because it is light weight and handy to create breeze immediately when I don’t feel like using an electric fan. I brought Bussen, Nagadai and Sensen that I could put in different places in the house for summer. The workmanship of these Uchiwa is excellent, I just re-order some to give to my friend as present.

I have been very satisfied with the products so far. In particular I have been using the iron teapot and frying pan the most! The frying pan was smaller than expected, but that is actually perfect for me as I currently live alone.
