Originating from the Republic of Benin, West Africa, home of the Dahomey Warrior’s (depicted as the Female Warrior Battalion in Marvel’s Black Panther), Zahara’s Benin fan is an exquisite piece of art that is woven from ethically sourced sisal straws, also known as Vetiver grass, and leather scraps in effort to reduce waste.

The Benin fan is an eco-conscious multipurpose accessory. It can be used as a hand fan, as a fashion accessory, or as wall art.

Each fan is hand woven and hand dyed and measures approximately 19 inches in length and 11 inches in width.

By purchasing this fan, you are supporting traditional craft preservation on the shores of Cotonou and are contributing towards increasing community engagement and creating opportunities for poverty reduction within marginalized communities in Benin.
