This hand fan is often used at times when a space is packed with people and the heat is radiated from them. Hand fans are common throughout the Pacific islands and span west to Japan. This hand fan is made from the processed coconut leaves found in the new shoot and the hibiscus fiber. The handle is made from a sturdy branch obtained from the native plants and carved to the desired shape and length.
