ashortwalk, as the name suggests, is the dream came true of Dan. Based near Truro, Cornwall Dan started his company in 2003 after leaving his job as a product designer/inventor at Dyson. He moved to Cornwall in order to realise a long-held desire: to set up a business, and live, 'ashortwalk' from the sea. Dan started designing and manufacturing his unique and functional products in a shed in Cornwall. He is no longer in a shed but his philosophy is still the same, and most importantly Dan and his team are now ashortwalk from the beach.
