As a resident of the Pacific for the past 15 years, I've enjoyed hiking and backpacking through the glorious terrain; and I've always enjoyed hand-carved items. The fuse of these two passions is what inspired the development of my Web site
Honolulu, HI (Vocus) April 3, 2010
Deep in the rainforest of Hawaii blooms an exotic branch of wood – the guava tree – its radiant beauty of golden shimmers is matched by a phenomenal durability; Guava wood is extremely dense. And from this wood, local craftsmen carefully harvest and create their designs; thus producing the ultimate walking sticks.
Launched in November 2009, http://www.WalkingStickCompany.com was developed by Web entrepreneur, Kathryn Urban, to bring this brilliant, handmade craftsmanship of Hawaii to the mainland. Here, online shoppers may also choose from wooden varieties of the United Kingdom, India and the United States.
“As a resident of the Pacific for the past 15 years, I’ve enjoyed hiking and backpacking through the glorious terrain; and I’ve always enjoyed hand-carved items. The fuse of these two passions is what inspired the development of my Web site,” Urban said.
The Web site has since established a one-stop shop for walking sticks, hiking sticks and staffs, knob sticks and derby canes. Available in heights of 35-and-a-half inches, 42 inches and 60 inches, the hiking staffs come equipped with an array of gadgets – compass, temperature gauge and leather strap – while the canes and walking sticks are offered in hand-carved, intricate designs or smooth and sleek rods. A variety of accessories, such as rubber tips for enhanced stability, may also be purchased.
To learn more about the brilliant designs and exotic varieties of wooden walking sticks, hiking staffs and more, shoppers are encouraged to visit the Web site’s newly formulated blog, http://www.WalkingStickCompanyBlog.com. This interactive tool will also be used to discuss details of the construction of Hawaiian-made sticks as well as provide readers with helpful information about finding the proper size stick.
“We offer comfy canes for everyday use as well as unique sticks with fully-encompassing designs. Many of our designs would make a magnificent collector’s piece you’ll treasure every step of the way,” she said.
