Story

Our Becal fans feature the work of two different artisans from the State of Campeche in southeast Mexico. First, Frederico, who lives in the small town of Escarcega, hand cuts the wood and with the help of a lathe, he perfects the shape of the fan holder. Secondly, Milagro de Atocha, from Becal, is in charge of the weaving process. She collects the Jipi Japa palm fibers and gives them a special treatment for them to be the right colour and texture to begin the weaving process. All the weaving is done in underground cave as they provide the perfect humidity for the flexibility of the fibers. It takes Milagro about six hours to weave one fan. Every piece is unique and 100% bio-degradable.
