Company Profile

Classic Canes Limited is a British family business that specialises in the production and wholesale of walking sticks to the retail trade.  Based in Somerset, England, Classic Canes supplies a range of over 700 walking sticks, seat sticks and umbrellas to retailers in approximately 40 countries worldwide.  The range includes everyday walking sticks, fashionable canes for women, orthopaedic walking sticks, collectors’ and folding walking sticks, contemporary and traditional seat sticks and shooting sticks, and a capsule collection of ladies’, gentlemen’s and golf umbrellas.  A full range of walking sticks accessories such as ferrules and wrist loops is also stocked.
Classic Canes celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2022, having been established in 1982 by Ben and Diana Porter.  Today, it is a second generation family business, with their daughter, Charlotte Gillan, as managing director.  Charlotte grew up with the business and returned to work in it full time in 2003 after a career in luxury goods marketing and freelance journalism.  Charlotte has an exceptional eye for product design and knowing what will sell.  As well as working with a range of hand-picked suppliers to create unique canes, she also paints the original artwork for many of Classic Canes' patterned walking sticks.  The inspiration for many of these is found in the Somerset countryside around Classic Canes, ensuring the firm's products have a particularly British style that appeals to buyers and walking stick users around the world.
