Every Mandarin Oriental hotel around the world has its own signature fan which is designed to reflect the local culture of each property. Mandarin Oriental, Doha’s fan design is a celebration of Qatari identity, with a mix of Middle Eastern inspired design elements.
Created in Qatar and handcrafted in France by Maison Duvelleroy, artisanal fan maker since 1827, the burgundy tone and patterns on each of the nine fan blades depict a series of connected symbols that are intrinsic to Doha, while the tassel is a beautiful reminder of the significance of pearling to the heritage of the city.
The hotel has created two fans, one to be prominently displayed in the hotel and the second to be presented to H.H. Sheikha Moza bint Nasser whose vision is the driving force in building the future of Qatar.
