Located in the heart of Downtown Asheville, NC, Ware is an independent retailer offering sustainable essentials for those looking to waste less. Sometimes it's locally made, sometimes it's recycled, sometimes it's vegan, sometimes it's all of those things. We offer well-made, beautiful products that aren’t a hazard to people and planet. We provide a platform for brands that are combating thoughtless consumption with goods that are sustainably produced and serve their purpose for years to come. Oh, and we're trying to look good doing it.
