Kausar which means "abundance" founded her eponymous handbag and accessories brand in 2015 which pays homage to female empowerment and the belief that all women should live their lives abundantly. Born and raised in the United Kingdom but grew up in a Kashmiri Pakistani family, Kausar was inspired by the intricate designs found in Kashmiri embroidery and wooden carvings. Coupled with her love for sacred geometry and art deco, and having travelled from an early age, Kausar has been exposed to rich cultural backgrounds which gave her an insight into international design, sustainability, history, and philanthropy. Kausar is a luxury brand which celebrates women through exclusively handcrafted octagonal handbags. A fusion of Kashmiri paisley embroidery and unique geometric shapes which run through each collection representing infinity, renewal and balance. Tucked inside each bag are positive quotes and inspiring printed imagery of pioneering women who have achieved great things from Maria Teresa de Filippis the first woman to race in Formula One in 1958 to members of the Women’s Royal Naval Service inspecting dive bomber equipment in world war two 1943. The brand philosophy is that ‘With self belief anything is possible’ - all products are designed to reinforce confidence, the willingness to go after the impossible, and the belief that it can be achieved.
