Early in this century, Malacca was referred to as the "King of Canes." Malacca is one species of rattan (Calamus Ascipionum) found on the coast of Sumatra. Rattan palms have long, slender stems and are perfect for fashioning.
The stem is not round, but has a ridge or spine, often called a "teardrop", running along its length. It is very light-weight, yet strong, with no two specimens being alike. The stem is made up of links with joints, or nodes, at both ends like a bamboo. The bark is strong, with what appears to be a satiny, natural gloss or surface glaze.

The umbrella canopy can be made of choice of colours of nylon or black silk, attached to a 20" rib frame of high tensile strength. Boasts the distinctive Malacca wood handle, grown in the Straits of Malacca, Malaysia.
