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.

Bamboo bicycles built in the developing world
Craig Calfee, a frame designer who has built bikes for Greg Lemond and other professional racers, started Bamboosero with the idea that teaching a man people to build bikes is a long-term solution that can have a lasting impact.Using bamboo makes this possible. It grows in most of the developing world and makes it far easier to supply a bike builder with raw materials. And it makes a common resource more valuable. Much better than mining or cutting down the forest. Oh. . . and it rides like a dream!The Bamboosero idea is simple: connect bike builders in developing countries with bike buyers like you. Buying a Bamboosero Bike doesn't just get you a great bike, it:* helps working families support themselves* injects badly needed foreign currency into struggling economies* creates the production capacity for an incredibly efficient local transport - bicycles!

April Banks loves chocolate. Period. She's something like a "chocolate lover-protestor-confectioner-documentarian-visual artist-lecturer." In 2002, April's life long love affair with chocolate was blind-sided by the information that child slave labor and other human rights abuses are regular practices in the growth, production and trading of chocolate. Heartbroken and confused she set out to understand it all first-hand. In 2004, she visited her first cacao farm in Ghana, and has been making conceptual art about it ever since. Although her chocolate consumption is a fraction of what it used to be, she still loves the food of the gods. Her obsession has lead her around the world to cacao farms in Ghana and Cuba to a major chocolate factory in Brazil. She has given lectures on the rights of farmers and on camel milk chocolate in Dubai, the commodities trading floor of the New York Board of Trade and in art galleries in San Francisco. She's developed a line of fair trade bars with a small confectioner and designed t-shirts and greeting cards about her personal conflicts as a chocolate lover. All for the bittersweet love of chocolate.
Bansen has been a member owner of Organic Valley since June of 2000. He is currently the West Coast regional leader of Organic Valleys Farmer Ambassador Program and one of the Cooperatives Dairy executive committee representatives for Oregon. Bansen is also a contributing writer for Graze Magazine focusing on cow nutrition.
Bansen is a thirdgeneration dairyman who milks around 200 Jersey cows twice a day on his family farm Double J Jerseys in Oregon. He spent six years working for his father learning the dairy business and purchased his own farm in 1991.
Bansen began pasturing his herd on mostly grasses and clover 15 years ago. He uses an intensive, rotational grazing system in which the cows are grazed in threeacre paddocks, the electric borders of which are changed every 12 hours. Every 16 days the cows begin the rotation all over again. Research is a daily matter on his dairy farm. Jon is constantly monitoring cow feedback (milk production, health) to measure success of any new changes made to the dairy.
Most people think Christmas is the best day of the year, but theyre wrong, says Bensen, The best day of the year is the first day of spring, when the cows go back out to pasture.
Bansen wouldnt dream of keeping his cows indoors yearround as happens at confinement dairies nationwide. He must bring them in for winter, to guard the herd from bitter weather and the land from being stomped on when wet and fragile. But the day that the skies clear, he opens the gates.
For months afterwards he sleeps with his bedroom window open, listening for rain. In springtime, we do a thing called The Dance, he says. We dance them outside, then dance them back in if the weather gets too bad. Its extra workhis father always just kept the herd in until spring was absolutely certainbut its worth it to Bansen. My approach is that whenever theres grass growing, my cows will be grazing. Thats what theyre meant to do, after all. I wouldnt have it any other way.
Organized in 1988, Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative represents morethan 1,300 farmers nationwide.
