Long time friends since they were together at boarding school in India, Gayatri and Rati knew that they would one day merge their creative interests in fashion and design to create their own label. Their complementary styles, interests and expertise have allowed them the freedom to bring the vibrancy and exclusive hand-craftmanship of India to the western shores.
They design and work with high-end artisans to put together a collection a few times each year.
The co-founders travel to India and immerse themselves in the chaos, and the vivid abundance of exquisite craftsmanship of artisans, two aspects that exist side by side and are so typical of India. It is in India that the designs come to life.
For Rati and Gayatri it was never a question of "IF" they would follow their passion but "WHEN" and the "WHEN" is definitely now.
Yatra is proud to support and work with a diverse group of women and men artisans in India who in turn support their extended families and local communities.

Altfrid learned to farm in the 1970s, through universitywhere he earned a graduate degree in Animal Sciencesand several internships. As an environmentalist, Altfrids goal was to pursue a healthy alternative to chemicalintensive, large scale agriculture. Agriculture as a business desperately needs a change, he says. I aimed to create a viable alternative that others could follow. And thats exactly what the Krusenbaums have done. Altfrid, along with his wife Sue and their three children, have been farming organically since 1990. They have 115 dairy cows, plus 80 head of young stock, on 320 acres. All but 100 acres, which are planted with various crops, are utilized for a pasturing system called intensive or rotational grazing. The Krusenbaums have also diversified their herd to include chickens and beef cows. Every year the Krusenbaums host interns, so that young people can share in this new vision of the family farm.
The Krusenbaums are one of over 900 family farmers in the Organic Valley cooperative. Organic Valley is the largest organic farmerowned cooperative in the nation. Organic Valley farm families can be found in 27 states from California to Maine. Please visit our website for more information.

Kuapa Kokoo was set up with the help of UK NGO Twin Trading, starting with 22 villages and 200 farmers.
Its mission is to empower its members, increase their income level and raise their standard of living. Central to achieving this goal is Kuapa Kokoo's belief in democracy, advocacy, transparency, selfreliance and essentially a cooperative model. Pa pa paa! is their slogan. In Twi, the local language, it means 'best of the best' and can be heard in growers' songs and as a greeting between them. Kuapa Kokoo is made up of a Union to which all the growers, who now number 48,854, belong, each with their own passports to record their membership and the amount of cocoa they deliver.
There are then four other sections to Kuapa Kokoo under the Union's umbrella:
• Kuapa Kokoo Limited the cocoa buying company
• Kuapa Kokoo Farmers' Trust which manages Fairtrade funds and projects for the village societies
• Kuapa Kokoo Credit Union which offers growers much needed and previously unobtainable credit facilities
• The unique UK arm The Day Chocolate Company of which Kuapa owns a third and which produces Divine and Dubble
chocolate, as well as the Coop range of Fairtrade chocolate.
According to a recent report from AntiSlavery International: 'Without giving an absolute guarantee that slavery could never occur, it is very unlikely that someone could be a member of a cooperative such as Kuapa Kokoo and be able to consistently use forced labour on the farm. The democratic structure of the organization should ensure that other members locally all live up to the centrallyagreed standards, because they can see the benefits.
The benefits of Fairtrade to Kuapa Kokoo and its 48,854 grower members are significant; from the secure and guaranteed fair price they receive for their cocoa beans to the knowledge they have gained of the international chocolate market. The extra money earned from Fairtrade sales is invested back into the community, into projects such as water supplies, latrines, crop improvement, gender relations and education.
