Aestas is a celebration of summer inspired by travel, nature and free spirited femininity. A modern resort brand designed for the global nomad, Aestas is uncompromising on quality and uses only natural fibres and luxury finishes with a sustainable focus. Our jewellery is handmade in Jaipur, the epicentre of India’s jewellery making tradition that stretches back some 5,000 years. Aestas works closely with artisans to ensure fair trade and the craftsmanship of our pieces is exceptional.
Founder and creative director Sophie McCabe studied fine art in Melbourne then attended the London College of Fashion before returning to Australia where she spent more than 15 years across both design and trend roles. Growing up near the coast on the Mornington Peninsula, Sophie was immersed in nature, creativity and travel from an early age. Aestas was born from a desire to combine these passions in a values-based label embodying an eco-friendly philosophy.
