Expressions of Love
In keeping with the spirit of lovers, you might be amused to learn the hand fan in Spanish culture was more than an adornment and for staying cool on steamy nights.
Back in the mid 1800’s freedom of speech for women was absolutely restricted and young women were only allowed in public when chaperoned. The sole purpose was to prevent direct contact with the opposite sex and what evolved was a secret code using the hand fan.
If you’re considering taking up this beguiling form of communication with your suitor, here is your starter kit of the gestures and their meanings that when combined are known as “the language of the hand fan”:
