Q+A6 Parasols: made in Hong Kong?
Hugh Farmer was recently on holiday in Burma (in 2013) and visited the town of Pathein (Bassein) where he visited the Shwe Sar Umbrella Workshop which produces exquisite hand-made parasols.
He mentioned this to group member Malcolm Morris, who lived in Hong Kong in the 1970s. Malcolm remembers his mother using a parasol which he thinks she bought in the Yue Hua Chinese Products Emporium store in Jordan.
Umbrellas were certainly manufactured in Hong Kong but does anyone know whether parasols were?
