“They’re luxe, yet low-key-not “crunchy”. It’s just one way Cesta is subverting the many stigmas surrounding sustainable fashion.”
"Jane Birkin would be jealous."
“Cesta Collective has made a big impact with small handbags on more than 1,400 women’s lives.”
"Cesta Collective founded their buzzy brand on making a difference."
“Cesta is not your ordinary fashion label. Founders Erin Ryder & Courtney Fasciano are building their brand like a community project. The fashion industry vets are working with female artisans in Rwanda to support local economies & focusing on sustainable sourcing for a greener future.”
Good Vibes are in The Bag
Cesta baskets are hand-crafted of locally sourced, renewable resources, by talented female artisans in Rwanda, Africa — whom we are proud to pay 500-700% times the national average salary of Rwanda. Each piece is finished by hand in Italy with very carefully chosen, sustainable materials.
