What would you wear if you had access to every luxury designer under the sun? If you’d rattle off names such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Aquazzura, Celine, Khaite, and Bottega Veneta, then you have a lot in common with Meghan Markle. She frequently wears all of these heavy-hitting brands, but they’re not the only labels she stocks in her closet. She also mixes in lesser-known brands, which are the subject of this story.
You might be able to recognize a Celine logo from a mile away, but would you be able to spot a Cesta Collective bag as easily? If not, allow me to introduce you to the ethically made brand. “Cesta bags are made by hand from start to finish,” the brand explains on its website. “Each basket is handcrafted of locally sourced, renewable resources, by talented female artisans in Rwanda, Africa—whom we are proud to pay 500 to 700% times the national average salary of Rwanda.” Scroll down to shop Cesta Collective and the six other under-the-radar brands that Meghan Markle wears.
