Zagbox is a line of artistic containers made in the US from sustainably grown wood, which beautifully display and highlight the objects they hold.  They arrive flat packed, and rely on clever features cut into the wood to assemble easily without tools or fasteners.  Each is designed to be multipurpose, and we encourage users to come up with creative uses for them.

The boxes are designed to ship flat, which reduces shipping cost and impact, and the end user simply folds and snaps the pieces together to form the box (this takes about a minute).  To allow the boxes to quickly transform from flat to sturdy container, we combined unique design features including dovetail joints which snap into place with a satisfying click, and “living hinges” cut into the wood, which make it flexible.zagbox

We have spent a lot of time carefully crafting designs, sourcing materials, and locating suppliers in order to reduce the environmental impact of producing the boxes and to manufacture entirely in the US.


“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”  — William Morris

There are three Zagbox designs, and they share a similar architecture and design aesthetic employing wood living hinges and snap-together dovetail joint construction.  They arrive flat packed and are easily assembled and disassembled by hand.



We have been inspired by the example of companies like Patagonia, which consider customers, employees, and the environment in their decisions, and demonstrate that taking care of all stakeholders can pay off in the end.

Because of this, we have paid a considerable amount of attention to the environmental impact of the boxes and designed them to minimize impact through their entire life cycle:

  • Made of sustainably-produced wood (FSC certified) and natural shellac finish
  • Renewable energy used for production
  • Flat pack reduces packaging and fuel to transport
  • Biodegradable at end of life.

We hope to improve the sustainability of Zagbox even further in the future.  -Zagbox

Amazing work!  We are looking forward to having you!

Fashion + Tea = Fashionista Tea by Brenda Dillon Cavette


Tea Cans

We are thrilled to have Fashionista Tea join Real NYC Designer Market!  Brenda has a brilliant product and is such a marvelous addition to our “Fashion, Design, Art & More” market!  Welcome Fashionista Tea!

fashion chamomiles-300x200

FashionistaTea Organic Orange Chamomile Blend

“The FashionistaTea Collection is sourced from small tea growers from around the world to assure the freshest and best possible ingredients. The line consists of all organic teas and botanicals and Fair Trade Tea wherever possible, which promotes fair wages for workers, helps to protect against land loss and promotes environmentally friendly processes for producers and their families. We love the idea of helping farmers in a small way in other parts of the world. For more information please visit www.fairtradecertified.org.

The unique feature of the collection is the custom crafted biodegradable silk pyramid sachets with a tea tag of a leopard print stiletto heel making its debut. More stylish tags will follow similar to fashion collections keeping the line fresh, collectible, current and ever-changing. This couture-inspired tag displayed over a tea cup not only allows for a visual experience but automatically becomes a conversation piece.

About the Owner

FashionistaTea was founded by Brenda Dillon Cavette. For as long as she can remember, she has loved tea, beginning with fond memories at the kitchen table drinking tea with her mom. Tea has signified many things, from sitting in quiet reflection taking a moment from a busy day, to gathering with friends and family celebrating special occasions. Travel opened a new world of tea for Brenda, revealing its history, wonderful flavors and sensibilities. The thirst to know more about this lovely, complex beverage led Brenda to study tea more intently and become a member of The Specialty Tea Institute, a division of The Tea Association of the USA.

A former television producer and Emmy Award nominee, Brenda produced numerous fashion and design segments. A love of all things stylish, from studying fashion design and merchandising in college, further inspired the connection of tea and fashion. These two worlds now meet in a collection of gourmet teas crafted to impart a unique taste and an aura of sophistication. The line was designed using Organic and Fair Trade teas packaged in beautiful, elegant tins. Tea is a healthy beverage and now FashionistaTea can turn any cup of tea into “Tea with Style.” ™”                                                       –FashionistaTea
