MALACCA

Early in the 20th 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 were perfect for the making of walking sticks. The stem is not round, but has a ridge or spine, often called a “tear-drop,” running along its length.

Very light-weight, yet very strong, with a good flex for comfortable walking yet like a bamboo unbreakable.

With no two specimens being alike. The stem is made up of links with joints or nodes at both ends like bamboo but is not hollow like bamboo. The bark is strong, with what appears to be a satiny, natural gloss or surface glaze. Colour varies from brown to blond or reddish amber.
