Azra Khamissa is also known as doctor Azra has more than 116K followers on Instagram, born out of necessity, and a desire to explore the world of leather goods on her own terms, Azra Khamissa started AZRA in 2015. An evolving offering has maintained its core values: minimalism, reducing waste and keeping things very, very local. The foundations lay in the use of ethically sourced camel leather, designing the bags herself, and making in collaboration with local artisans.
The focus on local production opened up doors to work with GCC-based designers, and this has cemented itself in the AZRA ethos. Multidisciplinary artists and talented creators have entered the AZRA orbit, and as they continue to expand our reach, we hope to share these values with like-minded thinkers to better the world of fashion, design, and art.

Azra Khamissa is a chiropractor by day and the founder of handbag brand Azra. Henna was more of an experimental pastime, but after she posted a picture of her decorated hands-on Instagram, Khamissa saw her innovative designs light a spark among her followers.
