Europe has played a pivotal role in the creation of cane culture that is now found across all European nations and the United States. Canes used in Parisian streets and those that gained popularity due to the colonial regime helped to exponentially raise the popularity of walking canes—both functional and the decorative options.
Europe & Cane History
Cane historians believe that Europe was the epicenter of global cane cultures because canes were patronized in some form through much of Europe's history. For instance, the kings preferred to carry a scepter along with maintaining a staff that was often used in specific ceremonies.
