There is quite a history behind the ōgi, the Japanese word for a folding Fan. Special fans were used by the military to give signals during battle. Referees of Sumo wrestling matches used fans to signify their status. And actors, in Noh and Kabuki theaters, used fans to accentuate gestures and emotions. There are two types of folding fans. One is made with flat strips of wood. The other is created with paper or silk.
