description was founded in 2002 to fulfill the Islamic and Modest clothing needs of socially conscious women who desire to dress stylishly yet modestly.

The company is the brainchild of friends and neighbors Sarah Ansari and Asra Razzaque who pioneered it post 9/11 with the idea of bringing to the mainstream marketplace modest women’s clothing blending Islamic Heritage with World Style. They were frustrated with the lack of chic modest clothing for women in mainstream stores and tired of having to scour the malls to find coordinated hijab.

“We believe that a woman's worth lies in her intellect and in her personality, and not in the shape of her body. We started out by surveying the marketplace and were surprised to discover how difficult it was to find fashionable modest clothing for women, in a reasonable price range. ” says Asra Razzaque.

Since their debut, the friends have never looked back. They have been written up in the New York Times and Washington Post, interviewed by NPR and featured on Bridges TV, to name just a few.

They see their venture as an outreach effort, popularizing modest fashion among women of all backgrounds. “Artizara is not just a business but a labor of love. We wanted to connect with and empower not only Muslims but women of all faiths, who have an interest in modest clothing or world style. We wanted to go out there and say: Islam is beautiful, and dressing modestly is cool,” says Sarah Ansari.
