My multi-colored fans arrived from AsianIdeas.com

Recommended Posts

My fans came in today!

Straw Fans (12 pcs)

 

I love them. It's kind of odd, but they have tags on them saying they are distributed by oriental trading. I couldn't find any mulit-colored ones the oriental trading website.

 

I am very happy with them, but the quality on all of them isn't perfect. I just thought I'd point this out incase someone is looking for perfect quality. Some are perfect, but a few have flaws. I took a pictureof a bent one & one with a piece out of place. The natural color is exposed on some of them under the weave. Anyway, I'm completely happy with the quality, I just thought I'd point out that they are not perfect incase someone is looking for pristine quality. I plan on trimming up some pieces to make them a little cleaner.

 

They are very light weight which is great for packing.

WARNING the color can come off onto clothes:

Out of curiosity, does the color rub off at all? I had a raffia beach bag and the color rubbed of on my clothing, so I've been hesitant to buy colored fans... "

 

I'm a scientist so I did multiple experiments. It does rub off. I rubbed it with a white towl & some color came off. The fan looks fine, but it could mess up clothes. Then I set it on the towel & it didn't come off so it should be fine if people just set it in their lab. I pressed really hard & it was still fine.

 

I also got it wet incase people are sweaty. It comes off easier when it's wet. Then I got my hand wet & held the fan. Nothing came off on my hand.

 

So I would be a little concerned about the colored fans. I feel like with normal use they should be fine. The most I could see people doing is setting them in their lab. I think I'll spread the word to guests to warn them to be careful with them.

How awesome! Getting things accomplished must feel great! That price is awesome and the colors look so vibrant! I think slight imperfection is fine for that incredible price!

Fun! I was thinking of staying with the basic natural colored ones... but I love the brightness of these! Since I might not be doing many flowers... this might be a fun way to add color to the ceremony! Thanks for posting. :)

That's why I wanted the color. I'm not decorating the ceremony site. It will just have white tulle on the chairs because that's what they do standard. So this is a great way to add some color. I love bright colors. I registered for fiestaware. This is so my style!


Another thing some people do is to add a colored ribbon the the handle of the natural colored ones to add some color.
