Why We Love The River

Our company’s namesake—Brazos Walking Sticks—is derived from our beloved river: the Brazos River.

Early Spanish explorers called our river Rio de los Brazos de Dios — The River of the Arms of God. Running through much of northern and central Texas, the river’s waters flow gently to the Gulf of Mexico, leaving several life-giving lakes in its wake.

Our founding parent company was called Brazos Oaks—a name referring to the majestic oak trees that line the river valley in central Texas. When the walking stick business was conceived—nearly two decades ago—the name Brazos Oaks Walking Sticks was adopted. Soon that moniker gave way to the more succinct Brazos Walking Sticks. Like the river itself, each name iteration flowed naturally from its source.

Like the Lone Star State in which it exists, the Brazos River is a symbol of peace, provision, and ingenuity. So walk proudly Brazos Stick owners: the handcrafted walking stick or cane you hold is created and buttressed by a great tradition—a tradition as timeless as the river it’s named after.
