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 Sandalwood Fans
Sandalwood fans were invented in China in about the 9th century. Like bamboo, ivory, bone, and mica, which were the already renowned Chinese hand fan frames or slats during the time, sandalwood slats were carved in elegant and elaborate patterns and finished with a lacquer to become handy and more visually appealing. They were initially crafted as folding fans that were leafed with a fabric or paper.
The pleasant characteristic of sandalwood fans, particularly the delicate and aromatic breeze that they offer, made them rise to popularity and an interesting Chinese handicraft. They were adorned with more complex designs, including colorful drawings, intricate carvings, and fire-painting, until machine-made sandalwood fans were introduced in the 19th century. Boasting of a smoother and finer texture than the handmade ones, the sandalwood fans soon became a symbol of the Chinese culture and considered as a popular tourist souvenir, especially from the Suzhou, Jiangsu province of China.
