The story behind the name Kester Black.

Dec 14 2016

The name Kester Black was inspired by an idyllic faraway bay in New Zealand.

Kester Black

Kester Black founder and bosslady Anna Ross was out boating with friends one day in the Queen Charlotte Sound, in New Zealand’s South Island. The group discovered a secret bay which instantly captivated Anna's imagination. She later discovered the magical oasis they'd stumbled across was called St Kester Bay.

Across the bay was a solitary house, inaccessible by road and completely off the grid. Anna later learned this house was owned by a priest (hence the choice of the colour black). “This place is the pinnacle of New Zealand beauty and I wanted my business name to have a tie with where I come from.” says Anna. Pristine, unique and full of colour, St Kester Bay is the perfect namesake for a brand devoted to beautiful design and uncompromising ethical principles.
