About the Hand Fan The folding hand fan is recognized as being invented in Japan or China with both countries holding legends of its creation. In Japan the fan is thought to be modeled after the folding wings of a bat, while the Chinese believe the sight of a woman fanning her face mask at a festival led to the tool's creation. The device was taken to Europe in the 1500s by way of trade routes and became an exotic and stylish symbol of wealth and class.
