I am Kausar Rehman, a Well Resourced Textile Designer, based in New York. I Lead, Collaborate and Assist in the Design and Development of Textile and Rug collections from inception to the final product.
I am a hands on Textile Designer and a fabric developer based in Long Island, New York. Having studied at Parsons, in N.Y.C and the National Institute of Design, India, I have been in the textile industry for 10 years while working with leading Rug and Textile Design companies full-time as well as holding Design consulting positions.
As a consultant I have been hired to work with Interior Design Studios, Fabric Houses, Home and Lifestyle product brands and boutiques in NYC. Together, we design and sample new Print, Weave, Wall paper and Textile Art Collections for Home and Apparel Industry. My expertise is in Print and Weave Design. I have the breadth of skills and experience to lead and execute a design process from Concept to Design and sourcing at factories to approving production samples.
I have the experience working with highly valuable artisan groups, Weavers, Embroiderers, Block Printers from South East Asia.
I have also travelled to and worked with some of the largest and most well organized factories of handmade carpets and printed textiles from Asia.
I am a weaver and weave inspiration source materials as well as Fiber Art pieces in my Studio space. I enjoy painting botanical works as well.
In my spare time I like to read about Cultures around the world, history and travel, work on DIY projects and turn around craft projects with my two boys. When I am not working, I also enjoy spending time outdoors and often taking short hikes with my family.
