Female-Owned Cigar Company Celebrates Cuban Women

Twin sisters Yvette and Yvonne started their own brand of cigars, called Tres Lindas Cubanas. Since then, they’re often the only Afro-Cuban women in a room full of men. Their three cigar blends pay homage to Cuban women. La Clarita. La Mulata. And La Negrita — all Spanish words used to describe skin tones of women.

They sell their blends on their website, shipping across the country to all 50 states, and in local shops. But it all started with an investment of $500. As first-generation Americans, it’s important for them to stay connected to their roots. They lead trips to Havana and take people through plantations and factories of Cuban cigars.
