Léventail a été importé en Europe à la Renaissance du Japon. Il s’est répandu progressivement jusqu’au XVIIIe siècle. Au départ, c’était surtout un accessoire utilisé par les aristocrates et les personnes les plus riches.

Au XIXe siècle, on utilisait un langage codé de l’éventail, qui permettait aux couples de flirter secrètement dans les salons des palais.
