Filling Spaces

Filling spaces is a family owned business in India, founded by two sisters: Nanu Khanna, who runs the business and studio facility in India working directly with the artisans, and Deepali Kalia who works in their design business in Portland, Oregon. The artisans are paid fairly and set their own prices for their work. In addition to creating a wonderful work environment for the artisans, Nanu and Deepali also sponsor the education for one-child per family, and provide the artisans with paid vacations, bonuses, and holiday gifts for their families. “This is our family now!” —Deepali
