We travel to Dusseldorf, terrible weather, so much work to do... this is what we were thinking in the flight when we started to travel to PSI on Monday ....
The tradition of Valencian fan - as a complement,to cool off or as an artwork - goes back more than 5 centuries.
Historians Elisa Amorós and Ruth de la Puerta Escribano highlight the economic importance of this artisan sector in the city of Valencia and its region. During the 18th century, Valencia consolidated its position as the main Spanish producer center, standing out at the European level for the quality of your fans.
In the 18th century, the Fan Artisans Teachers' Guild was born in Valencia and in 1802 there is already a Royal Fan Factory in the city. Probably because of this situation, two French people settled in Valencia with the aim of taking over the Spanish market, importing pieces that are later assembled in Spain. One of them is called Simonet, that arrives at Spain in 1825 and other is Fernando Coustelier. As a result of the arrival of the first, several Valencian artisans go to King Ferdinand VII to prohibit the import of French fans.
It will not be the only complaint of the Valencian fanners since in 1842 they asked the Provincial Council to raise the demand against the Crown because it suppressed the Decree of October 27 of the same year that eliminated obstacles to the import of French fans. The Valencian Fan industry achieved its maximum development in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The great architect of the 19th century was José Colomina, who revolutionized the production of fans.
Valencia was the main producer and marketing center although it was supplied in part by sticks and fabrics made in L'Horta towns. Over time, the city will lose the hegemony and the production of fans and this hegemony will be displaced and concentrated in some municipalities of the region, with Aldaia being the town that will have the largest number of workshops, so it is considered the current Valencian cradle of the fan.
