Specialty
Our specialty is the creation and production of items exactly according to customer preference. This includes your wedding fans, as well as your promotional or party fans!

Buy from Artisans
Buy direct. Communicate direct. We are trusted by returning customers and new customers for over 12 years. You will not find us on third party sales website shops of Amazonians, Alibarbers or Ebagoneers. No middle persons, no provision takers, no fulfillment warehouses.

Also, no shopping cart, we are happy to have an efficient and effective conversation with you about your specific wishes.

Brief History
Sunisa Umbrella Workshop, the owner of WeddingFans.Asia, started out in 2005 as a Research &Development workshop of business development firm JEDI (www.jedi.asia), with the purpose to create improved and new bamboo products that generate extra income for the rice-farming community around Bo Sang village and the Chiang Mai valley, in northern Thailand.

With growing product development, and customer requests for production, the workshop transformed into a sole proprietorship, managed by Ms Sunisa and Ms Supaporn. The workshop now operates independently, while JEDI continues to provide customer service, lowest cost worldwide shipping, and technical advice.

Principles - Social and Environmental Responsibility
We adhere to the principles of producing and trading fairly. We practice social responsibility and fairness in our interactions with and among team members, our suppliers, customers and other stakeholders.

We maintain responsible environmental practices. Bamboo is an environmentally responsible raw material.

We aim for the highest degree of environmental acceptability in all our materials and processes. Our products are handmade. We use no heavy machinery.

In January 2018 we installed our first-stage, very small scale, solar power system, powering the workshop's hydroponic lettuce garden. Since November 2017 we use an electric vehicle, a pickup trike ("Elmo") for local pickups and deliveries. This website runs on clean solar energy generated in southern California, US. Together with JEDI we have planted and maintain a small forested area of 1000 trees to (more than) compensate emissions caused by shipping.
