Here at Country Clothing & Store we have a wonderful selection of walking sticks and umbrellas from Classic Canes available online and in store. Classic Canes are a specialist walking stick company that produce stunning quality and style in their collections. Started in 1982, Classic Canes not only provide classic wooden walking sticks but folding canes, seat sticks, umbrellas, extending patterned walking sticks, thumbsticks, crooks, staffs and more.
Classic Canes was started by Ben and Diana Porter who purchased a ruined property on stunning woodland in Somerset in the 1970's. They renovated the house and when they found that the woodland was perfect for growing the materials for walking sticks, they created a small collection that they sold locally. Soon the business was expanding into other product ranges and selling in countries all around the globe. Today some of the walking stick collections are still made in the same location using the materials from the woodland and the company is still family run.
Our selection includes floral patterned extendible walking sticks which add a fun feminine touch to a very practical item as well as classic wooden crooks, country staffs and natural thumbsticks which are just the ticket for dog walkers and country men and women. For the hunters and shooters out there we have some top quality canes with carved handles in the form of dogs and game.
When considering a walking stick is it important to have it at the right height for your body. Most would think this is to do with how tall you are but in it actually to do with the distance between your wrist bone and the floor. To measure the correct height for your walking stick stand upright while wearing your usual shoes and have your arms at your side and relaxed. Then ask someone to hold the walking stick next to you with the handle on the floor (up-side down). The base of the walking stick should reach just under the bump of your wrist bone. This is a general guide and if you require specific advice for medical reasons then it is best to consult your doctor.
Here at Country Clothing & Store we are proud of our collection from Classic Canes and we admire the combination of a practical product that looks stylish and attractive. A perfect gift for someone who enjoys country pursuits.
