The umbrella is known throughout Ashanti Kingdom in Africa as Katamanso [Kata’man’so] which means 'the covering of the nation'. The Ashanti royal umbrella (also spelled Asante), seen in various settings throughout West Africa, was originally made of silk and other rich fabrics. This prestigious item entrusted historically with protecting the king from rain and the excessive heat of the sun, is also a worldwide household staple that provides protection to all that posses one.
