The original Malacca Traveller umbrella was beloved by our American cousins, but many feared that they would have trouble transporting it home on an Aircraft.
A little ingenuity was called for, so they came up with the Malacca Traveller umbrella. This has all of the aesthetic attributes of its predecessor: a refined Malacca cane with plated gold collar, but with an added advantage... The handle and tip can be removed so it can easily be transported in a suitcase.
