Khu Khu are proud to bring you a variety of fans so we can provide something for a multitude of events and occasions. All fans are 100% hand-made in Spain.
PREMIUM COLLECTIONS - WOOD
The Sticks - Our premium collections in wood are exceptional because the design of the fan itself is new and offers you a more modern and streamlined accessory. Each and every piece of the fan has been hand-carved from what begins as a block of Mongal wood.
**To see images and videos of the entire process from wood block to finished fan, please see our blog entry "Tradition x Modernity : The makings of a Khu Khu fan"
The fabric has been designed exclusively for the collections using various different disciplines (photography, painting, illustration, digital design) and is then either digitally or screen-printed onto high grade cotton.
The Rivets ("the eye" which keeps all the sticks together )
For our premium wood ranges, we have designed our own bespoke rivets. These have been designed using modern 3D technologies and then cast, gold or silver plated and polished. We have 2 different types of metal rivet. One which finishes with a solid half sphere with engraved detailing, the other which can house a semi - precious stone.
PREMIUM COLLECTIONS ACRYLIC
The Sticks - Our premium collections in acrylic are also made in our own exclusive streamlined design offering you a more contemporary accessory. Each and every piece of the fan is laser-cut from Swiss-imported acrylic which offers a delicious, glossy finish which pop with fantastic, vibrant colour!
The Acrylic Rivets
Khu Khu have designed a machine to make our own bespoke rivets in a range of lovely vibrant colours. The machine melts sticks of custom-made and dyed tube, so that the head takes on a pretty half sphere shape and keeps the sticks together in a bright and beautiful way.
Premium Collection Finishes
Both our metal and acrylic fans have the logo engraved into end of both sticks, which is then hand-filled with a colour or metallic paint. We also paint the edge of the fan fabric to add an additional element of excellence which also adds longevity to the fan.
Each fan is hand-made with LOVE and these are truly exclusive, collector's items!
PARTY KHU - DIFFUSION COLLECTIONS
Our PARTY collections offer you the same excellence in print design as our premium collections and we use high grade cotton with ALL our fans.
The Party Khu fans use traditional, standard shaped sticks and rivets... However, we sometimes paint the rivets according to the desired look of any one collection.
We also paint the fabric rims on certain lines and we have the logo painted on the end of all our sticks.
WEAR AND CARE
So now you have your super special fan, how should you clean it?
The best way to clean the acrylic sticks is to gently wipe them with a damp cloth or wet wipe before polishing them off with a soft cloth, preferably cotton, such as a tea-towel to bring them back to their original glory. It is best to handle the fan using the end sticks so as to avoid unnecessary cleaning of the inner varillas (sticks).
All wooden fans need very little maintenance but the end sticks can be wiped with a very slightly damp cloth.
