Yoko Meinertz and Erica Pedersen founded Esencia at the beginning of 2006. With contrasting backgrounds, Japan and Bolivia - the two shared an objective to produce high quality, natural products, simple in design whilst making use of the craftsmanship of indigenous artisans from the Andes region.
The collection began with childrenswear and in 2011 the womens collection was introduced.
Esencia products are made from the finest natural alpaca and llama fibres and they only co-operate with suppliers who value the principles of fair trade and sustainability.
Esencia is a combination from two cultures; The Andes’ long standing tradition of high quality textiles alongside Japan’s integrity of design, resulting in a unique brand intended to inspire modern people aware of natural and simple living.
Designed in Denmark, made in Bolivia and Peru.

100% Alpaca and 100% Llama care:
Dry cleaning is recommended or Hand wash cold, with mild detergent. A gentle baby shampoo is perfect.
Soak the garment for 3-5 minutes (taking care not to overlook), gently squeezing the bubble through the garment, avoid twisting, wringing, scrubbing.
Rinse the garment in clean cold water until the bubble disappears, then gently squeeze out the water. Lay the garment flat between towels, and gently roll the towel to dry the garment. When the water does not drip any longer, then lay it flat, reshaping the garment and leave it to dry out of direct sunlight.
