* Waft & Co *
WHO ARE THEY?
Waft & Co is based in Wells, Somerset and was founded by ex-Vogue staffer Maria Matthews. After many years of wearing Spanish hand-fans when holidaying in Andalucia, Maria increasingly found she was bringing them back to the UK to use during heatwaves here, and as an invaluable year-round aid for those pesky menopausal hot flushes!
Maria’s aim is to revive the lost art of fan wearing in the UK. Made using only sustainable woods and cotton, this is a 100% no plastic initiative!
WHAT DO THEY SELL?
Waft & Co’s launch collection includes limited-edition statement hand-fans by KhuKhu, plus an everyday collection from French designers Abani & Co. All fans are hand-made by artisans in Spain using traditional methods handed down through generations. Commissions and bespoke orders also taken.
