Humanity Centred Designs opens first Cornish store

Agency & Commercial Development

Property consultants Alder King in Truro have let a prime retail unit with ancillary accommodation on Market Street in Falmouth to an award-winning material innovation hub and fashion enterprise.

Humanity Centred Designs, which transforms textile waste into innovative materials, will be opening its third UK store in the building.  It already operates stores in Bath and London, offering unique collections of artisanal products and handcrafted home décor, accessories and textiles.

The property occupies a prominent position on Market Street, Falmouth’s principal retail thoroughfare.  It benefits from 941 sq ft of open plan retail space, with a further 1,003 sq ft of accommodation on the first, second and third floors.

Alder King, acting on behalf of the property investment and development company Rowe Estates (UK) Ltd, negotiated a six year lease off a quoting rent of £27,500 per annum.

Ian Simpson, partner at Alder King in Truro, commented: “Cornwall’s retail market continues to show signs of recovery.  There is good demand for prime space from both established brands and innovative start-ups, helping to breathe new life into our high streets.  We look forward to seeing Humanity Centred Designs opening in Falmouth in the coming weeks.”

Humanity Centred Designs was founded by Vishal Tolambia, a Forbes 30 Under 30 entrepreneur.  The company has been honoured with 11 international awards worldwide for its innovation, sustainability and impact across the industry by organisations such as the United Nations, UNEP, Global Citizen and many others.
