Our Roots

Khazana (the Urdu word for “treasure”) is a gallery, boutique, and community gathering space located in Minneapolis, MN. Owner Anju Kataria started collecting treasures from around the world as a child growing up in India and continues to travel globally to meet and work with passionate craftspeople. Supporting and connecting with local and international artists is at the core of every project at Khazana.

Anju has cultivated a Khazana family with friends of all shapes, sizes, ages, and backgrounds. Most days are full of her homemade chai, Parle-G biscuits, curious new visitors, and lots of laughter from long visits with old friends.

Our Mission

At Khazana, we have relationships with our sources. We sustain traditional art forms by honoring their histories and paying fair wages to artists, thereby financing their longevity. We have the unique opportunity to work alongside artists and to influence new designs.

By sharing the history of the pieces we sell, hosting programming with local and international artists, and collaborating with like-minded communities, we bring awareness to the hard work of craftspeople.

Our Team

We are fortunate to have a fantastic team of people around the world who make Khazana possible. Our team in Minneapolis is led by owner Anju Kataria and includes local artists, writers, and creative thinkers. The real treasure of Khazana are the artists whose products and artistic practices we showcase through our website and in-person boutique in Minneapolis.
