The Mills Fabrica will champion social and sustainable innovations for the fashion and food industries in a newly-opened and multifaceted space in King’s Cross.
Now expanding its key focus area from Techstyle to AgTech, it is strategically positioned to spearhead sustainable innovation and creativity to redefine the realms of how they grow, make, transport and discard what we wear and what we eat. The Mills Fabrica is set to become a vibrant player, advancing regenerative solutions for generations to come in the heart of London.
Housed within a three-storey Victorian warehouse reimagined by renowned architects Barr Gazetas, The Mills Fabrica comprises Fabrica X, an experiential concept store and innovation gallery for sustainable brands; a café by Mouse Tail Coffee; membership-led work spaces; a tech lab for prototyping; a powerful start-up incubation programme; and curated events dedicated to nurturing a community of sustainable innovators.
The Mills Fabrica’s investment fund has a vested interest in over 25 startups – collectively valued at over $1 billion – tackling systemic issues at the material level, within the supply chain and all the way down to the business models in need of driving better environmental, societal and governance outputs. Notable portfolio companies include garment fibre recycling pioneer Renewcell, Geltor, a biodesign company developing collagen-based vegan ingredients for the beauty industry, and Unspun, who are rewriting how jeans are made with 3D scanning for a bespoke-fit and on-demand manufacturing.
With the second outpost of the Hong Kong-based regeneration project The Mills, the London opening marks an exciting cross-continental chapter in the global journey to drive a more sustainable future.
