Burgundy Ostrich & Ebony Hand-Fan

Made in
More details

True to the tradition of ostrich hand-fans, this creation in downy feathers is as spectacular as it is soft and cosy. Indeed, this shape of hand-fan respects the natural curve of the feathers, forming a kind of shell protecting the person wearing it. Feathers are tinted in two different shades to bring movement to this creation.

The feathers are cut, flattened and fixed to the sticks.

Hand-fan height 14 inches. Width 27,2 inches.

Handmade in France.

African ebony crafted in Spain by a tabletier. 

Ostrich feathers supplied by Maison Légeron, Paris.

The brand-heritage expert who reinvented historic fan house Duvelleroy

ESSEC graduate Eloise honed her professional nous working as a brand-heritage consultant for maisons such as Van Cleef & Arpels et Yves Saint Laurent. Just as she was casting around for her own project, she encountered Raphaëlle Le Baud, who was holding a fan – kickstarting an unlikely exchange that would see the duo resuscitate high-end 19th-century fan house Duvelleroy in 2010 (Eloise is now solo). Fashion world collaborations raised its profile, with 2014 seeing the launch of an e-shop and boutique – on the same street as Eloise’s gallery/artisan incubator Mayaro.
