Hi Tedward, Gotta question for you. Sometime ago, you shared a video with me of a Geisha fan dance with collapsible fans that you made. I've been checking your site but I don't see these fans. Do you sell them? If so, how can I find out more about them? (I'm really interested to hear if they close with a flick of the wrist, like a regular fan?) Thanks for your help.
