- Cesta Collective, founded by Courtney Fasciano and Erin Ryder. Their baskets are handwoven by female artisans in Rwanda, Africa, using locally sourced, renewable resources in fair trade environments. Each piece is hand finished in the USA with carefully chosen, sustainable materials.
“One of the main goals of our brand is to connect female artisans in developing economies to a global marketplace -- and DHL allows us to do this with ease,” said Ryder.
“DHL makes our business possible - facilitating our global supply chain and allowing us to reach customers across the world,” said Fasciano.
