Worshipful Company of Fan Makers
The Worshipful Company of Fan Makers is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Company was incorporated by a Royal Charter in 1709. As fan making is now done by machines rather than by craftsmen, the Company is no longer a trade association for fan makers. Instead, the Company functions as a charitable establishment.
The Fan Makers' Company ranks seventy-sixth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Arts and Trade United.
