What is Sandalwood?

Sandalwood, or the Sandal tree, is a class of sweet-smelling evergreen tree that is native to the tropical regions of Asia, like India, Nepal, and Indonesia, as well as some parts of Australia and Hawaii. They have yellowish and fine-grained aromatic wood and a sweet-smelling oil develops at the center of their trunk after they reach about 15 to 20 years. As they age, the wood color of sandalwood also turns dark and they are considered mature at 60 years old.

Sandalwood oil, which is transparent in color, has a light yellow shade, and a warm woody scent, is in great demand everywhere and such is obtained from the roots of the sandalwood trees after the tree has matured to the age of 40 to 80 years. Its medicinal properties are widely recognized in Ayurvedic medicine, or Hindu traditional medicine, in Chinese medicine, and among many others, thus, when harvested, it is processed as an ingredient for cosmetics, soaps, scented candles and essential oil for aromatherapy, and perfumes. The outer bark of the sandalwood tree, on the other hand, is mostly used for carving and decorative articles, just like the case of our sandalwood hand fans.

History of Wood Fans

Sandalwood fans were invented in China during the 19th century, thus they are also known in Asia as the traditional Chinese wood fans. Like bamboo, ivory, bone, and mica, which were among the already renowned Chinese hand fan frames or slats when the sandal wood were started to be used for making hand fans, sandalwood slats were carved in elegant and elaborate patterns, finished with a lacquer to become handy and more visually appealing, and then crafted as folding fans that were leafed with a fabric or paper.

The pleasant characteristic of sandalwood fans, particularly the soft and easy to engrave characteristics of their wooden ribs, as well as the aromatic breeze that they offer, made them rise to popularity as a Chinese wood craft. Thus, from being merely used as hand fan frames, Asian hand fan artisans soon after made them as engraved sandalwood fans, painted wood fans, and ornamental wood fans , which are masterfully-crafted with the various forms of Asian wood art, like relief carving, wood burn art, painting, and intricate cutting techniques.

Owned initially by Asia's elite society, technological advancements, like the rise of laser cutting machines, enabled the Asian hand fan artisans to create more beautiful sandalwood hand fans with a smoother and finer texture than the handmade ones until the latter has become commonplace for everyone's enjoyment.
