Female Founders: Her Tote, Her Way

Her Tote, Her Way

As women, what we choose to carry with us speaks volumes. Each item holds certain value, in return quietly reflecting who we are as individuals and how we see the world. In the spirit of solidarity, we asked a few of our favorite female founders what they carry in their Cuyana leather tote bag, revealing a personality and perspective that’s uniquely theirs. Passionate, powerful and free from pretension, these women are the definitive leaders in their respective fields, creating products for women—by women.

Jessica Alba

Actress & Founder of The Honest Company & Honest Beauty

Talented actress turned innovative entrepreneur and mother of three, Jessica Alba has proven time and time again that women are always capable of evolving to follow their calling.

“I think it's so important that female founders support each other. There aren't enough of us out there, so it's essential that we lift each other up and have each other's back. It's incredible what we can accomplish when we just come together.”

Kat Schneider

Founder & CEO of Ritual Vitamins

In her futile search for the perfect prenatal vitamin, Schneider set out to create her own, becoming a true advocate for how to lead a clean and healthy lifestyle.

“Women are strong. Individually we are strong enough to sustain life, to build businesses and change the world. We are so used to doing things on our own that asking for help has become a sign of weakness. But it’s important that we lean on each other because when it comes to sisterhood, it’s 1 + 1 = 3. The only way we are going to grow and evolve is together.”

Payal Kadakia

Founder & Executive Chairman of ClassPass

Driven by her lifelong love of dance, Kadakia’s New York-based subscription gym-class service now connects its clientele to over 8,000 fitness studios in 39 cities around the world.

"I'm so inspired that female entrepreneurship is on the rise. Realizing there's more than one path to the corner office, more and more women are creating their own. Together, we are developing better products and creating the positive workplaces we crave and deserve. Collectively, our impact is sizable, our voices are loud—and we're just getting started.”
