Aiming to break new ground to join London’s £42bn a-year creative industries market, Loupe plans to create an experiential destination in the heart of London’s heritage rich Jewellery Quarter, connecting UK artisans & discerning consumers, sharing appreciation for creativity, craft & unique design.

  • UK Creative Industries worth £92bn GVA, £150bn growth forecast by 2023
  • 78% of Millennials would choose experience over product purchases
  • Number of people buying craft in England has increased from 6.9m in 2006 to 31.6m in 2020
  • 1000sqf high demand Camden Council shop secured on 10-year lease 

Idea

Loupe aims to make creativity accessible to all, and be the one-stop, go-to global destination for creativity, craft and unique design. A vision underpinned by two growing UK industries; Creative - predicted to grow to £150bn GVA by 2023, and Leisure and Recreation - predicted to grow to £141bn revenue by 2022.

Retail is taking a new direction. Millennials are pushing a growing ‘experience’ economy and Gen Z are preferring experience over product purchases. Loupe aims to build on this, creating a visitor destination offering creative making experiences. We are now seeing a craft explosion with at least 10m people taking part in weekly craft activity. Moreover, with 54% of the UK using craft to relax and 28% to improve mental health, Loupe aims to provide valuable space for people to escape busy lives.

Our team strives to celebrate Hatton Garden’s heritage, promote UK design & protect craft skills by offering business support & workspace to artisans and future talent. With 80% of consumers preferring independent brands, Loupe will sell their products to consumers mindful of sustainable purchases & attracted to UK products. As the Council complete final checks, we aim to move to the Hatton Garden premise soon.

Funds will contribute to a creative utilitarian immersive space, and an interactive website with integrated social channels providing a joined-up physical & digital journey.
