Workers skillfully embroider hand fans with brightly coloured geometric shapes.  They use bamboo and colourful yarn to create intricately designed fans whilst sitting in their homes.<br />
<br />
Each worker makes up to ten fans a day, with each fan being sold for around 30 pence at village fairs.  Photographer Abdul Momin pictured the technique in Gaibandha, Bangladesh.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
