About Gold Foil
The gold leaf technique used to decorate these fans has a 400-year history. Known as Kanazawa foil, it is named after Kanazawa City in Ishikawa Prefecture, which accounts for over 98% of gold foil production in Japan.
Among the makers of gold leaf products, none is more famous than Hakuichi, the creators of these exquisite traditional folding fans.
