Designer: Cesta Collective

Zebra Lunchpail basket bag



Launched in 2018, handbag label Cesta Collective supports female empowerment and local communities. All bags are expertly handwoven by a female artisan in Rwanda, Africa, using traditional weaving techniques and locally sourced, renewable resources. Fashion industry veterans Courtney Weinblatt Fasciano and Erin Ryder joined forces to create Cesta Collective with one goal: to create beautiful products while making a difference. The bold and colorful basket-bags are made from locally sourced sisal – a biodegradable and renewable plant fiber – which is woven and dyed over a six-day period, then finished with the finest Italian leather accents in New York City. Cesta’s aim is to promote female empowerment and bolster economies through its special accessories.
