With adjacent seats for almost three and a half years in the same organization Gap Inc (Delhi), Nidhi and Kritika often used to discuss about their entrepreneurial aspirations. Sharing the same hometown Ranchi, they always had an unsaid connect & the two become very good friends in no time. Chit chat over evening snacks and dinner get-together helped add up to the strong bond.
Due to pre-occupied office schedule, they never happened to explore their entrepreneurial aspirations. However, things were destined differently. Soon after leaving their jobs for different personal reasons, their paths crossed again and gave shape to their ambitions in the form of Design Gaatha Home & Living. With a sole moto to bring DESIGNER home and living products to everyone’s reach, the two joined hands to build the exclusive home décor brand Design Gaatha where every design is inspired by our rich heritage and culture.
