"No longer saved only for vacations, the basket bag has become a wear-anywhere-with-anything accessory. Our new discovery is New York-based Cesta Collective. Expect elevated designs with artisan flair – each bag is woven by skilled craftswomen based in Rwanda. They’re the perfect accompaniment to everything from oversized trench coats to denim cut-offs.” — Porter Magazine
Our first collaboration - featuring LHD's 'careyes' monkey print. Proceeds from the purchase of this style go to mothers2mothers, an international nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV by providing education and support for pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV.
Cesta baskets are woven with care by female artisans in Rwanda, Africa, using locally sourced renewable resources. Each piece is hand finished in America with close attention to detail. Through direct collaboration with our weavers, Cesta’s designs are a celebration of traditional Rwandan weaving techniques interpreted through a modern lens.
