Jinling folding fan whose frame is made of bamboo and surface of resilient paper or silk damask is a traditional handicraft in Nanjing. It is a tool to cool down in summer, and also for art appreciation due to its elegant appearance and cultural connotations.

The Jinling folding fan is not only one of the four most famous fans in China, but is also listed on the intangible cultural heritage list of Jiangsu province.
