CLASSIC CANES®: THE WALKING STICKS SPECIALIST SINCE 1982
Classic Canes is a UK family business that specialises in the wholesale supply of walking sticks, walking canes, folding sticks, seat sticks and umbrellas to the retail trade. Established in 1982, Classic Canes is based in a woodland in Somerset, England, where wood for many of our wooden hiking staffs, thumbsticks and knobsticks is grown. Our other products, such as wooden walking canes, derby canes, fashionable, patterned and folding walking sticks are made to our specifications by partner factories. Classic Canes is well known for the style of its canes and its strict quality standards. Retailers who choose Classic Canes as their walking stick wholesaler and supplier can be assured of the very best walking canes and a very knowledgeable level of customer service.
Classic Canes is owned by Ben and Diana Porter and their daughter Charlotte Gillan. The family started the business when they realized the woodland surrounding their house was naturally growing suitable wood for making heavy duty walking sticks. Originally a small range of wooden walking canes was offered to local retailers, but the business soon expanded so that today Classic Canes supplies a range of around 700 models of height adjustable walking sticks, fold-up canes, seat sticks and umbrellas to shops in the UK and many countries around the world. Classic Canes was one of the first walking stick suppliers to design models for women. Beforehand, women had to make do with a man’s crook or derby walking stick cut down in height. Classic Canes’ sense of elegance and style means that fashionable women’s canes are available to complement any outfit. Popular styles include floral and leopard print as well as modern patterns, which are also available in popular folding cane styles too. At Classic Canes there really is a walking stick for everyone.
