INDALO Man SYMBOL Rainbow Painted Hand Fan Wooden Fabric Handheld Flamenco Fan From Spain by Kate Dengra


Handpainted by Kate Dengra

MADE TO ORDER Please allow 2-4 days to make this before shipping (normally 48 hours but slightly longer during busy periods). Photo is for example it is hard for me to recreate the design exactly however it will be very close to what you see in the photos

THE INDALO MAN Is the symbol for Almeria (where I live). The figure is taken from a local cave drawing that is dated to about 4,000BC. There are many ideas as to what the drawing represents but most think it is a man holding a rainbow. It is said to bring good luck to those who have it in their possession. It also is said to protect and bring peace. Most homes in Almeria have an Indalo symbol somewhere!


If this listing is a MTO or Made To Order listing then please allow 2-3 working days for me to complete the order before dispatch. I am only in the workshop Mon-Thurs and I do NOT paint over the weekends. I have an order diary and I will keep you updated with time frames and will mark your item as shipped on the actual day of shipping. If you are concerned that you have a specific deadline to reach then please get in touch before you place an order.


Unless otherwise stated all my hand fans are made with wood and fabric. All the hand fans come with a FREE gift bag.
I have made and sold hundreds of fans over the last few years and even have a few celebrity clients that have been see with my hand fans (Emilia Clarke and Christina Aguilera being 2 of them.
Hand fans are becoming increasingly popular year by year and many celebs have been papped with a hand fan (see my facebook page to see who!).....Sinitta, Sharon Osbourne, Mel B, Diane Kruger, Victoria Beckham, Dame Helen Mirren, Jessica Chastain and Taylor Swift are a few among many that I have photos of.
The Handheld Fan is the eternal accessory and has been around for over 5,000 years! They not only help with extreme heat but they can also be used to help with hot flashes, during labour, as a fashion statement, alternative bouquet plus more and more men are using them now.


I am able to help you put together a wedding or event package to match a specific theme or color scheme. I can supply bridal fans with matching bridesmaids fans and even a wholesale quantity of smaller fans for guests. I have access to about 20 different colors to help match up a theme. And to help with large orders you can take advantage of my layaway payment plan.


I am more than happy to take on custom orders. I can reproduce a logo onto a fan or perhaps a simple image. Please feel free to convo me and we can discuss ideas. Please be aware that I have an order diary and I allow myself a realistic timeframe to complete orders - during busy times my order diary can be booked up a couple of weeks in advance so if you have a deadline then please get in touch first to see if the order is possible. (see also shipping info for delivery times to your location)


For orders over $100 please get in touch if you would like to take advantage of my easy payment plan and spread the cost over 2 or 3 payment. Orders will be shipped as soon as the last payment has been made. nb. no refunds will be given for unfulfilled layaway payments so please make sure you complete all payments as arranged.


I am in SPAIN and this does cause a problem with shipping times! The Spanish haven't quite grasped the idea of 'urgent' and although I have an option to send via an urgent option my experience is that you pay more and it takes just as long so PLEASE PLEASE make sure you have enough time for your order to arrive. Take into account that if you have ordered a fan that is 'made to order' that I might not dispatch until 7-10 days after receiving your payment. This is only during busy times and I will normally try and dispatch withing 48 hours of payment. Orders to USA/AUS please allow up to 3 weeks from dispatch and EUROPE 10 working days.


Thank you for taking the time to view one of my hand fans. I have many more photos on my facebook page I hope you have time to take a look and 'like' my page. Here you will find new offers, competitions, customers feedback, photos of my hand fans in use - from both the public and celebrities and much much more......I look forward to seeing and interacting with you there!
