"No longer saved only for vacations, the basket bag has
become a wear-anywhere-with-anything accessory. Our new
discovery is Cesta Collective. They're the perfect accompaniment
to everything from trench coats to denim cutoffs."
— Porter Magazine
"Cesta Collective, a new, cult-ish handbag line with a feel-good success story you’ll (happily) think about all weekend. They’re luxe, yet low-key—not “crunchy”. It’s just one way Cesta is subverting the many stigmas surrounding sustainable fashion.”
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 & to promote female empowerment through joyful, ethically made accessories.
