»Posted by on Déc 1, 2014 in ? White space ¿ | Commentaires fermés sur Uchit: Women's empowerment through sustainable luxury

Uchit celebrates artisan craft and partners directly with majority women-owned handloom cooperatives in the small southern state of Kerala, India. These artisans belong to the age-old traditional handloom weaver societies where the weaving skills and the wooden looms are passed on from generation to generation. Uchit is among the first one hundred registered California Benefit Corporations, in addition to now being a Certified B Corp. As the primary aim of Uchit is to empower women, a majority of the profits goes towards projects that support that goal, both in the USA and elsewhere in the world.

A golden age looms for Asia

»Posted by on Déc 1, 2014 in ? White space ¿ | Commentaires fermés sur A golden age looms for Asia

Asia will experience a new golden era of peace and prosperity over the next 10 years. The export-led growth model of the past will no longer work for the major Asian economies. Hence, we are unlikely to see a return to double-digit growth. If the major Asian economies, especially China, India and Indonesia, are able to maintain growth rates of around 7 per cent a year, this will be a major achievement. Fortunately, this is within their reach. Three factors will drive this. The first factor is an almost unbelievable accident of history. It is truly remarkable that the three most populous Asian countries, namely China, India and Indonesia, have simultaneously put in place dynamic and reform-minded leaders who can be expected to transform their countries over the...

Is SURAT (India) becoming the largest diamonds' laundering machine ?

»Posted by on Jan 9, 2013 in ? White space ¿ | Commentaires fermés sur Is SURAT (India) becoming the largest diamonds' laundering machine ?

Legal or not — almost all diamonds pass through this one Indian city.   SURAT, India — The Gujarat Mail is just another red-eye train. Twelve powder-blue passenger cars crisscrossing, like so many hundreds of others, India’s northwestern breadbasket through the dark of night. At five minutes past two, the Mail begins its four-hour journey, lumbering south from Surat to Mumbai. Inside, the third-class cabins are equal parts scurrying roaches and dangling unwashed feet; fading monsoon rains that bleed through the iron-barred windows grant only fleeting mercies. A few hundred unwilling insomniacs are sandwiched together, helplessly sweating on filthy vinyl benches as the shrieking of the rails splinters dreams along every gentle bend. In this part...
