ashortwalk is a product design and manufacturing company based near Truro, Cornwall. Started in 2003 by Dan who left his previous job as a product designer/ inventor at Dyson and moved to Cornwall in order to realise a long-held desire: to set up a business, and live, 'ashortwalk' from the sea.
We believe that nothing is truly recycled until it has been reused. This is why our products are made in the UK from recycled materials, collected from schemes we have pioneered. We have identified problem areas within UK recycling systems and ensured that we have created solutions. From coffee cups to plant pots and now even paper, we are always on the lookout to create unique products from unusual and problematic waste streams.
We’ve come a long way in 12 years, from our initial range of tide and time clocks. We now offer a range of pioneering ECO products... from house numbers and house signs, to unique tableware all sold throughout the world via some very respected retail brands. The key to staying competitive in the global market from a shed in Cornwall has always been to design and manufacture unique, functional products.
We are no longer in a shed, but our philosophy is still the same... and most importantly we are still ashortwalk from the beach.
