  1. Very graphic and whimsical designs! I think even our young ones wouldn't mind using these fans. They find the lace ones “old.” 🙂

    Up until the generation of my parents (and mine but about ten years older), they're called abanicos here too. But nowadays, people mostly use the Tagalog word, pamaypay.
