Cesta baskets are handwoven with love by female artisans in Rwanda, Africa, using locally sourced, renewable resources, in fair trade environments. Each piece is finished by hand in America with carefully chosen, sustainable materials. Our hope is to create economy in the developing world and to promote female empowerment through joyful, ethically made accessories.


We founded Cesta to make a difference in the lives of others - to promote female empowerment through consistent income-generating opportunities for women across Rwanda, Africa. We are extremely proud of the work we already do abroad, however; as a US-based company, it is important that we bring that mission closer to home as well. 

We've been busy protesting, calling our representatives, donating, sharing, listening & learning. We pledge to always vote for systematic change and we commit to continue doing our part, as both a brand and as two humans, in opposition of racial injustice, violence and oppression. We will keep showing up.
