We hope very much that you will choose Classic Canes as your walking stick supplier. Reasons to choose Classic Canes include:
Established in 1982, Classic Canes has developed an excellent international reputation for the quality of its products and customer service. Retailers should be aware that cheap copies of some Classic Canes products are available from other suppliers. Photographs can be deceptive. If a similar looking product is cheaper elsewhere, you are almost certainly not comparing like with like. Click here to view our Testimonials page.
Style and Design
We believe strongly that walking sticks should be attractive as well as useful. At Classic Canes, we pay great attention to colours, handle shapes, proportion, materials and changing fashions. Walking sticks are very personal items so all the little details matter. Many of our walking stick patterns are created from original artwork by our managing director, Charlotte Gillan. Exclusive to Classic Canes, they are carefully designed to appeal to the tastes of walking stick users who appreciate style and design.
Over 700 traditional and contemporary walking sticks, seat sticks and umbrellas are available promptly from stock. The range is comprehensive, well-edited and offers both excellent quality and value for money.
We do not sell directly to the public. It is our company policy not to compete with our own stockists.
All our suppliers are bound by the Ethical Trading Initiative. We use the best factories in countries in the UK, across Europe and further afield so that walking sticks, canes, seat sticks and umbrellas from many countries are brought together so retailers can have the convenience of ordering whatever they need from one source.
The owners of Classic Canes manage the business themselves, ensuring the highest standards are maintained in all aspects of the business.
Orders are accepted by telephone, email, fax and through our password-protected online ordering service (stockists, please contact us if you would like to receive a password). Please use whichever method you prefer.
Trade Fair Programme
Before Covid-19, we exhibited at a number of trade fairs every year. This programme is currently on hold but retailers are invited to make an appointment to visit us at our headquarters in Somerset instead.
All orders we receive are carefully considered. If we feel a customer has ordered unwisely, we will advise them accordingly, just as we recommend new products or best sellers. We routinely compile suggested orders and replenishment orders for our customers, using our expertise to ensure stockists receive exactly the right mix of products for their business and its clientele.
Payment is accepted in Sterling (GBP), US Dollars (USD) or Euros (EUR). Export customers are welcome; we have great experience in the logistics and administration of despatching to over 40 countries around the world. Customers from the EU shoudl contact us for further information about importing from the UK since Brexit. We now have a lot of experience in that as well.
