We have clients in the US, Europe etc. We have two brands Yellow Apple and Riverside, Yellow Apple is for kids and Riverside is for ladies. We thought that a brand with an export quality and export styling has a big market in India since people are getting more access to internet etc. So we decided to launch our own brand in the names Yellow Apple and Riverside to cater to the population that wants international quality,” avers Goyal.
