Af-Ccessory of the day - Olele

Olele is the brain child of graphic designer and crafter Karmele.

Karmele of Olele -

'Spanish hand fans with a different touch', Olele was inspired when a woman on the train in Salzburg (on the border of Germany and Austria) asked Karmele if she could use her black hand fan. Apparently, the woman loved fans but wasn't able to find them in Germany and Austria.

Soon after coming back to her native of Spain, Karmele's fan broke and she decided to make one herself with fabric she loved - it was then that Olele was born.

Olele african print fans  -

Karmele says:
"My fans are limited edition. I usually make two to four fans from each print, but the fan turns out to be one of a kind depending on the pattern placement. I love playing with patterns and colours and making patchwork-like combinations.
I also accept custom designed orders, and I have made several left-handed fans."

Our favourite has to be this Hot pink wax print fan:
