enhanced by the hardships endured especially by the independent artisans, talents and
homegrown brands RIUH have come to be synonymous with. We’re hopeful that our return to the scene will provide the deserving brands, talents and the community a much-needed boost – this time not only on ground, but online as well through RIUH 24/7.”
