Vesta Studio was born out of a love of high quality, luxurious textiles, and a need for affordable, modern + minimalist options that are also cruelty-free and eco-friendly. We go the extra mile to source the most innovative vegan fabrics, to cut + sew our garments locally, and design beautiful multipurpose garments so you can "buy less, but better."
The vision for Vesta began in 2009 while I was attending Parsons in NYC. It was the first time I had really thought about the fashion industry, and I became fascinated with textiles and the stories behind the fabrics I was using for class projects--especially leather, wool, silk, and other commonly-used animal-derived textiles. I realized that even I, a longtime vegetarian, didn't know much at all about these fabrics. I became obsessed with researching the truth behind fabric and and other issues within the fashion industry such as sweatshop labor and pollution. Soon I had given up buying clothing and shoes made from animal products, and instead searched for cruelty-free items that were also ethically-made, high quality, affordable, and fit my minimalist aesthetic. This constant, frustrating search made me realize there was a big hole in the market, and a vision for a clothing brand that satisfied all of these "pain points" emerged.
Today I'm proud to say Vesta is a brand built on transparency, community, and living in harmony with the earth and all living things. Our #1 priority is and always will be environmental and social responsibility, which should be the rule and not the exception.
We're based in the Bay Area of California and currently sell online only, but I hope to meet you in person someday soon. I am so excited you're on this journey with me + Vesta Studio!
