In 2012, solo entrepreneur and mom Shafu Vakil launched her company Rayz – a fashion line for scarves, exotic handbags, & trendy wool caps in Upstate NY.  Born in the valley of Kashmir herself, textiles like pashmina and silk were and continue to be a source of beauty and inspiration for her.  She loves picking out the fabrics, colors, and designs of her purses and other accessories together with the artisans who come from parts of the world where skilled craftsmanship is a cultural tradition that is passed down through generations.  The relationship between the designer and artisans is an opportunity for creative collaboration across cultures.

Her goal is to design and make beautiful, high quality scarves and accessories like our best-selling five-zipper bags and bring them to your doorstep.  Offering products of uncompromising quality at affordable prices is a core value of our company.

We support fashion that is both beautiful and functional!
