Announcement   Alanah's Couture Fan Veils and Silk Veils,
Handcrafted for the discerning dancer and admired for their quality and artful color combinations, Alanah's fan veils are used by dancers and theatrical companies around the world. Entirely handmade by Alanah from the finest split bamboo and China silk, Alanah's fan veils are comfortable, durable and lightweight and are designed to enhance your personal flare and technique.

Alanah's note to her clients: Because of the influx of mass produced products like fan veils to our marketplace, I would like to remind my clients that my fan veils and veils are hand crafted by me; an artist in my studio in Brooklyn, New York. I would never say that the reason my products are so cheap is that "we have inexpensive manpower" as another major supplier on Etsy states. Before you buy from these low-cost, money driven factories, please consider where your items are coming from and what you are supporting. Every one of my clients gets personal attention and my silks do not leave my studio unless I am 100% satisfied with them. I am the only person making them so I have complete quality control. I appreciate all of my clients; thank you for your support; without you there would be no business!

If any of my fans or veils appear out of stock on Etsy please contact Alanah for direct ordering.
TROUPE and CUSTOM orders are available! Please inquire.
**Standard sizing for fans are 36 x 60

**Look for my new line of crystal and chain jewelry in late August. Brooklyn Body Bling!


****ATTENTION*****
I will be out of the studio from July 7th through July 19th. All new orders MUST be placed on or before July 5th in order to be shipped before I go on vacation. Thank you very much! Alanah

PRICING:
Due to the rising cost of supplies and shipping I will be implementing a small price increase starting July 6th. Fan veils will be $78.00 and domestic shipping $12.00.
Thank you for your understanding!

I absolutely love my new fan veil. The staves are larger and the silk floats so well. I let my teacher take it for a test spin and she was highly impressed and asked me to share with the other members of our troupe.

About

Floating Silk Jewels...Fans and Veils!

I purchased my first pair of fan veils back in 2009. I didn't realize it then, but the set was made for 2 right hands; I just thought they were supposed to be uncomfortable to dance with! I worked for months on developing my own technique, creating original spins, turns and just learning how to move with the flowing silk. In 2010, as I began teaching fan veil dance workshops, I decided to create my own line of fans, comfortable right/left hand sets in my own hand-dyed silk. It took some trial and error to fit the silk on to the bamboo staves, but after the first initial flops a sturdy but fluid and gloriously colorful fan veil was born!
My color inspirations come mostly from the natural world and some from my interpretations of client's custom requests.

My business is growing and I've added silk veils to my collection. Nothing makes me happier than the positive feedback I've received from performing artists around the world!!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I can customize orders. Please contact me directly for a color/size consultation. You can send color images or for an example, if you have a costume that needs a matching veil or fan veil you can send images of the costume. The pricing generally stays the same depending on the pattern and the sizing of the silk.

Sizing details

The standard fan veil size is 36" x 60". The standard extra long fans are 36" x 108". Veils are 45" x 3.5 yards.

Care instructions

The silk may be given a light ironing to remove wrinkles. Static guard anti cling is fine but keep it a light misting i.e. do not put the spray valve too close to the silk as it may create a watermark.
