Making a fan in the traditional way is a fascinating, long and complex process. In order to shed some light on this wonderful artistry take a look at the following 7 steps for a better understanding of how it works.
Step One - Wood heated in an oven in a block.
All fans start out as a humble block of wood. Khu Khu fans use a beautiful MONGAL wood which has a lovely, rich, deep brown colour with a pretty grain.
Khu Khu are proud to announce that they are now on sale in Selfridges. Great news! We are honoured to sit amongst some other luscious products in the brilliant beach and summer pop up on the lower group floor of contemporary accessories. Go and get yours first and be Selfridges Summer Ready, which is clearly the only ready to be!
Summer time commences.
It was a whirlwind fashion week in London as usual... and temperatures were soaring! (perfect Khu Khu weather) The Flight of Fancy collection was on show at the Strand Gallery for a week - a fabulous central London showroom to present the SS/17 fans to national and international buyers, with new agents, ThreadNotBare.. I'm looking forward to sharing the updates from that with you soon, but for now here's an insiders peek at what they saw... xThe Strand Gallery - a stone's throw away from Covent Garden
Another exciting step for Khu Khu - We are very happy to announce that we now have new super-star UK agents, ThreadNotBare on board. Introducing us to the best fan-friendly retailers for SS/17, they've been super busy already showing the fans in London and Paris.. (see separate blog post for pics of the London Fashion Week showroom and event photos.) Thread Not Bare come with a wealth of experience and I am looking forward to where the future takes us!
For all wholesale enquiries please contact Anna Cohen firstname.lastname@example.org
And you can also buy certain ranges from the Flight of Fancy...
Great news for Khu Khu... we have been chosen to stock with Wolf and Badger - the well renowned home for new independent designers and brands, super exciting!
You can check out our products over on the lovely swish website which amongst other things, lets you zoom in on the products, and there is a 'meet the designer' section which will feature Khu Khu shortly.
Go khu khu x wolf and badger! Feels great to be on board.
