Esencia was founded in early 2006 by two mothers, a Bolivian and a Japanese living in Denmark. Despite their two very different backgrounds, they discovered they shared the same common desire: to produce high quality natural products with simple designs, making use of the craftsmanship of the indigenous women and artisans of the Andes. Designed with children’s delicate skin in mind, Esencia products are made from the finest natural Alpaca and Llama fibres and organic pima cotton. These are sourced only from suppliers who value the principles of fair trade and sustainability. Designer Yoko Meinertz has an unassuming eye for the beauty in the simple and unpretentious. Esencia products are not about seasonal trends, but about encapsulating the notion of purity and simplicity. These are heirloom quality garments produced with graceful harmony, social and environmental responsibility.
