A Short Walk is a circular design practice. We make products from materials no-one wants, and we help others make unwanted materials viable, useful and desirable. Of the 300 million tonnes of plastic now produced every year, 40% is for single-use. That 40% alone weighs about the same as 120 million small cars, or 70 million blue whales. After its short life, most of this valuable material and the energy used to create it are lost, irretrievably, to landfill or incineration.

Adam Curtis Online showcases a special selection of textile products that have been designed, developed and produced within the UK by either ourselves or top UK designers. Although we prefer working with British Wool and supporting the British wool industry, other wools and fibres are sometimes used, more often than not to create something truly unique. We believe in only using the very best materials for the job and never use cheap fibre or questionable sources in our products. Country of origin is always clearly stated in item descriptions.
Our goal is to create timeless, durable designs you will cherish forever – beyond any fleeting fashion trend – made with respect for the women and men who crafted them, bringing a renewed sense of pride to these artisans and their communities. Aiayu – [ai-ya-yu] ‘soul’ in the indigenous Aymara language from Bolivia – was founded in 2005 by Maria Høgh Heilmann to make products made with care for the environment, the worker and the wearer. We believe that a product’s origins, sustainable production and environmental impact are as important as its aesthetic.
My passion as a guitar maker comes from a life-long obsession with making things. From a young age I have always tried to manipulate objects and materials in order to create something entirely different. I find that working with wood is a way for me to connect with nature. The simple act of shaping wood to make something functional or beautiful brings me endless satisfaction. I have been fortunate enough to sell my first few guitars to some very talented, wonderful musicians and seeing them perform their music on my instruments was an invigorating experience.
