Driven by story telling, The Mills Fabrica's experiential retail store explores the technological advances between the food and fashion industries. Showcasing the ecosystem of innovators taking inspiration from nature herself, this will be a store that will educate, inspire and challenge preconceived notions of what is possible at the biomaterial level and beyond.

Based in the heart of London’s vibrant King’s Cross tech district, The Mills Fabrica will launch its UK outpost in early June with the opening of Cottam House – a three-storey Victorian warehouse encompassing 11,383 sq. ft. situated in the Regent Quarter. The Mills Fabrica’s London base will comprise a start-up incubator, an investment platform, high-spec labs, strategic collaborations to solve high profile industry problems alongside a curated programme of cultural and industry events, and an experiential retail space and café both open to the general public.
