Classic Canes is owned by Ben and Diana Porter and their daughter, Charlotte Gillan. The family started the business when they realised the woodland surrounding their house was naturally growing suitable wood for making rustic 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 500 models of height adjustable walking sticks, fold-up canes, seat sticks and umbrellas to shops in the UK and many countries around the world.
STYLISH WALKING CANES FOR EVERYONE
Classic Canes was one of the first walking stick suppliers to design models for women and these have become a particular strength of the company. Beforehand, women had to make do with a man’s crook or derby walking stick cut down in height, which was often neither elegant nor comfortable. Ladies' walking sticks have different proportions to gentlemen's sticks and are available in a wide range of colours and patterns to complement any outfit. Classic Canes’ sense of elegance and style means that fashionable women’s canes are available for ladies who see no need to sacrifice their elegant appearance just because they need a cane. Cane styles can be discreet or flamboyant and include floral and leopard print as well as animals, insects, birds and modern abstract patterns. Classic Canes' exclusive cane patterns are also available in popular folding cane styles.
At Classic Canes there is a walking stick for everyone.
