The cornerstones of the zestt brand are friendship, beauty and purpose. Childhood friends Benita Goldblatt and Jess Diehl launched the home + lifestyle brand in 2013 with easy to coordinate textiles and tabletop. The line quickly expanded into wholesale, with more than 400 retail partners who offer our collections each season. As the company and our product selection have grown, we've committed to social responsibility as a key component of our growth, from sourcing our cotton at organic farms to artisan partnerships.
We design home decor for a modern world, with a focus on organic textiles and whimsical tabletop and barware. We love mixing classic styles with unexpected colors and patterns and partnering with artisans to create one of a kind styles.
We've made it a priority to source and provide a variety of 100% organic cotton options for our customers. Each selection, from throw blankets to kitchen textiles is made with cotton farmed without the use of chemicals and pesticides. Not only do these selections allow us to meet a growing customer demand for organic offerings, but it also means that your purchase is contributing to the health and safety of a new generation of cotton farmers. As we approach 2016, we are in the process of obtaining our GOTS Certification - the most stringent marker of a commitment to organic cotton goods.
In addition to our retail website, zestt collections can be found at Nordstrom and independent boutiques nationwide.
