IN PARTNERSHIP: Imagine a place where you can dine, shop and host events all under one roof.

Enter Wabi Sabi, a concept store which first opened in Saudi Arabia’s capital in 2019. Since then, the Kingdom’s first vegan dining haven has expanded into a conscious community with a venue now in the UAE. By adopting a holistic approach, the concept draws inspiration from its name which translates into beauty in imperfection.

To ensure wellness remains at the forefront, the Japanese concept caters to the health-loving community of the region. With a focus on luxury clothing items, art and essential oils, the experts have taken a 360-degree approach to create an all-rounded creative space.

A host of ethical brands across fashion, beauty, health and more are available which reflect the space’s eco-initiatives. This includes IAmBetter which offers health and beauty products that believe in the power of plants, technology, and human empathy. Through natural supplements, oils, balms, tonics and elixirs, the products take care of everything from hair, skin, nails, immunity and gut health.

For energy healing, Piedras brings a range of healing stones that focus on vibration, energy, and handmade ready-to-wear pieces handmade in Venezuela. For contemporary and genderless upcycled pieces, Salad offers a host of upcycled timeless keepsakes that stand the true test of time.

As a wellness sanctuary for events, the team of chefs and experts can create a bespoke experience according to the requirements of each brand. For like-minded individuals to grow, the space ensures each visitor connects with the other in the retail and well-being arena.

By thinking beyond the Kingdom, the concept eventually opened in Al Quoz in Dubai in 2021 and in Mirdif and Sharjah with further plans for expansion.

For customers to embrace a new era of healthy living, Wabi Sabi has something for everyone who enters.
