Razak's family made gamti bandhani for local clients, and later went into the wholesale business. He learned traditional bandhani from his paternal grandfather, and has been doing new designs for the urban market since 1991. A good artisan can make his own designs, he feels.

Razak wanted to take the design course in 2008, but was not able to manage. In 2015 he studied design at Somaiya Kala Vidya. "I know something, but I can learn a lot more," he said.

For his 2016 collection Razak created bandhani saris, dupattas and stoles with the theme "Mela."

He drew bold layouts inspired by crowds and amusements, and used bright colour blocks.
