A keen traveller and cultural influencer, Waris Ahluwalia has inspired the evolution of the House of Waris RARE through his role as Global Explorer. He has journeyed extensively in search of pieces by modern-day artisans that reveal an individual story, celebrating both destination and legacy. Eclectic, handcrafted creations, from fine scents and oils, to precious accessories and objets d’art, have been curated for private sale through The Luxury Collection.
Iconic Venetian palazzo, The Gritti Palace, at the heart of historic and illustrious trade routes, is the instinctive choice to house such a range. Showcased in the Explorer’s Library, the House of Waris RARE blends destination experience with artisanal excellence and indigenous discoveries.
