Buy once, love forever
Heavy Gretel wants to encourage a slightly more conscious form of consumerism. All the items in our shop have a low carbon footprint and the people who make the items are getting paid properly.
The power of making
Our aim is to promote the work of independent creatives, championing their skills through regularly changing and thoughtfully curated displays, telling the stories of objects, highlighting the power of making.
