African Fan: Traditional Craft from Ghana

Explore our African Fan, a journey into the authenticity of Ghanaian craftsmanship. Each straw fan comes to life in the Bolgatanga region, in the northern part of the country, in West Africa. Emphasize that these art pieces are born from a fair trade project led by a dedicated group of artisans.

Unmatched Quality of the Ghanaian African Fan: Exceptional Weaving and Goat Leather Handle

Derived from a meticulous manual crafting process, our African Fan, woven by hand with straw from the “pennisetum purpureum” or “elephant grass,” embodies exceptional craftsmanship passed down through centuries. This large herbaceous plant thrives naturally in various regions of Ghana, with its most prominent presence in the north, specifically in Bolgatanga.

Bolgatanga, a gem in the Upper East region of Ghana, excels in traditional craftsmanship. Bolga fans, skillfully crafted from elephant grass harvested in the vast expanses of the savannah south of Bolgatanga, symbolize this artisan mastery.

In the heart of this rich artisanal and natural environment, the use of elephant grass to create fans perpetuates an ancient practice. Rooted in local tradition, it contributes to the sustainability and outstanding quality of regional artisanal creations.

Equipped with a goat leather handle, this “African fan” from the straw of Ghana combines strength and longevity.
