“When we were kids, our grandmother knitted cardigans and our mother sewed dresses for us.” — Eleonore, Sophie and Anna Meier

enSoie has been creating adorable kids clothing since the early 1980s. With the second generation in charge, Eleonore, Sophie and Anna Meier  realised the long lasting dream by opening petit enSoie in March 2018 - a boutique for the little ones.

“Having young children of our own motivated us to create our own kids line.” — Eleonore and Anna Meier

At petit enSoie you can find anything for your children, reaching from elegant dresses to everyday jeans and charming interior objects. Always using high quality materials and handcrafts, petit enSoie is elegant and charming with a unique touch. We specialise in precious new born gifts and extraordinary clothing for boys and girls.


Our line

Newborn — 18 month
Our everyday cotton jersey line is made of Austrian cotton and manufactured in Switzerland. It contains simple onesies, pyjamas and day dresses. To keep the baby warm we created a knit collection made of 100% Italian wool, produced in Germany. Our precious 100% Mongolian cashmere blanket is a classic at enSoie and can be personalised to make a special gift. 

Size 86 — 128 (age 1.5 —8 years)
Our classic line for boys and girls consists of simple shirts, straight cut jeans and lovely cotton dresses. The knit collection, including a jumper, cardigan and v-neck gilet, keeps the kids warm. Our “club sportif” collection with allover printed trunks and sweaters makes every day look comfortable and cool.
In collaboration with outerwear experts namuk we created a down jacket. For the winter stroll, girls can wear our 'Harris Tweed' coat and the boys our marine jacket made of Austrian Loden. “Start to love rain” with our 'Pelikan' rain coat made of ETA proof (wind and water resistant) Swiss cotton. 

Interior
Our interior range covers everything from embroidered cushions, blankets, poufs, bronze lamps to silky rabbits. It will make every child's room unique, cosy and loveable. 


enSoie cares

Sustainability, both ecological and social is our core philosophy. Design wise we try to create timeless pieces that can be passed down generations. The materials we utilise are free from synthetic fibres and harmful substances. Most of our products are labeled with OEKO-TEX® 100, respectively 1000 or the GOTS. For our partners leading small manufactories we guarantee a fair salary and a good working space. Through decades of working together with our partners, many have become close family friends. 

Our “service après-vente” makes sure that all enSoie items are taken care of to last for many generations. Just a few examples include sewing on buttons, fixing holes, shortening pants or exchanging a coat's lining.


The store

petit enSoie is located in the heart of Zürich. Just a 5 minute walk from the motherhouse on the other side of the Limmat river. The store was designed by Eleonore Meier. “I wanted parents and kids to feel comfortable”, she says. The interior is fully made of wood, the shelves resemble small houses and the soft colours bring out a cosy atmosphere.

"Oro de Cacao" Chocolat Dieter Meier

Oro de Cacao

In direkter Nachbarschaft von enSoie eröffnet Dieter Meier heute an der Wühre 15 seinen «Salon du Cacao». Dazu möchten wir Sie gerne einladen.

Der Geschmack des reinen Kakao. Schokolade, die ausschliesslich die natürlichen Aromen der Kakao-Bohne enthält. Ein neues industrielles Produktionsverfahren, das in der Schweiz in Zusammenarbeit mit Prof. Dr. Thilo Hühn (ZHAW) entwickelt wurde und die Verarbeitung von Kakao-Bohnen auf qualitativ hochwertigste Weise revolutioniert.

Im Gegensatz zur herkömmlichen Schokoladen-Fabrikation werden keine Fremdaromen zugefügt, um eine vollaromatische, fruchtige Schokolade zu erreichen, die auch bei einem hohen Kakao-Anteil nicht von Bitterstoffen dominiert ist.

Die Schokolade-Spezialitäten sind ab Freitag, 8. Dezember 2017 auch bei enSoie an der Strehlgasse 26 in Zürich erhältlich.

Bronze

Monique Meier, founder of enSoie, crafts all the ideas with her own hands in intense sessions at the in-house atelier above the store. Monique creates mythical creatures with gnarled faces, called “les animaux fabuleux”, or beaming hooks and buttons. No pen or paper needed, only a lump of clay, artistically shaping, experimenting, studying and re ecting. There is still an element of mystery behind the creation process; ultimately, every object has its very own character.

All our bronze objects aim to make us appreciate what’s around us a little bit more and add that certain something to our homes: a chandelier to strike just the right ambiance for a cosy get- together, a hook to hang up your favourite coat, a knob to open and close your
 drawer and keep your precious cashmere safe, and so much more.

For the majority of our production, we head out into the rural countryside in the Canton of Schaffhausen, Switzerland. There, two men, two generations, united by one passion, work side by side. In Max and Martin, the “Meister und Geselle”, we have found our perfect partners to carry the business forward. They belong to a small group of founders who master and apply traditional hand-casting techniques. The  final touch, again, is added by Monique Meier herself. The “patinage” is the  finishing process where the colour and texture nuances bring the object’s personality to life.

The company’s premises have been enriched by objects cast in bronze since the late 1980s, such as the dancing rabbits (1987), enSoie’s iconic symbol and lucky mascot, or the grand chandelier (1990). At enSoie we pursue long-lasting collaborative relationships with selected local artisanal manu- facturers and partners from abroad.

enSoie Essence

enSoie’s olfactory range evokes nature through carefully chosen materials.
A woody, oral aroma was chosen to accentuate the aura of the “maison enSoie”, which is at once vitalising, stimulating, soothing, refreshing and harmonising: a scent designed to gently emphasise your uniqueness.

The key process begins with the creation of the essence, which is the amalga­ mation of various ingredients including geranium, peppermint, lavender, clove, green tangerine and rosemary. We collaborated with a local perfume maker in order to create a signature fragrance, harmoniously adjusted depending on the type of application, taking care to balance the notes to avoid any overpowering.

enSoie Essence consists of

#1 the perfume
#2 the scented candle
#3 the hand soap

We guarantee the use of sustainable and natural ingredients. Production in small, controlled batches allows us to maintain a product of very high quality.

100% Swiss­made.

Vichy ceramics

enSoie objects sprout many roots and what starts as a dessin for a silk scarf may end up as a real object made of ceramics. This is how ideas catch on and find their way into our homes. As for the hand-painted Vichy pattern, it all began with the checked woven fabric we all know and love.

When you hold our trademark checked Vichy ceramics in your hand, it’s all thanks to Ms Justyna Babel-Piktel and her team. A long-time friend of enSoie founder Monique Meier and a stellar partner since 1990, she was born in 1954 into a traditional Polish pottery family - the master ceramicist and professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw knows that all things beautiful are unique and imperfection is a quality. That is why she and her highly skilled team cast and paint everything by hand. Their mastery manifests itself in the intricate details and the one-of-a-kind quality of our ceramic range.

A classic line for every home

The variety of shapes and sizes are designed for your pleasure. Our classic Vichy ceramic line is the perfect set for your doppio, oolong tea, bouquet of roses, Bircher  muesli, spaghetti Bolognese, fruit and vegetables. A closer look at the pieces, which at first glance may appear identical, reveals the uniqueness of each item thanks to subtle variations in shape and colour.

What’s your colour?

The Vichy ceramic line comes in six classic colours inspired by Zürichsee during l’heure bleu (navy), a morning sky in springtime (baby blue), a local pine deep in the woods (green), dark thunder clouds on a summer’s night (black), a chilled raspberry yogurt (pink) or a forever loving heart (red). Limited colour editions feature temporarily in our very particular palette. In each instance, Justyna Babel-Piktel and her team mix the colours from scratch to give the collection its colour nuances. Some items come with a 10k gold-infused glaze and for these products we advise hand-washing.

„ONE OF A KINDA MAGIC“
enSoie und Julian Zigerli - eSJZ - capsule collection

Anna Meier (enSoie) und Julian Zigerli haben sich für die einzigartige „eSJZ - ONE OF A KINDA MAGIC - capsule collection“ zusammengetan. Präsentiert wird die Kollektion im Rahmen der Mode Suisse 2017. Erste Teile gibts ab Donnerstag, 31. August 2017 während der "Sélection Mode Suisse" bei enSoie. Dann umgehend nach der Mode Suisse Show am Montag, 4. September 2017 und vom 5. - 27. September wieder bei enSoie.

Die langjährige Freundschaft und der unternehmenslustige Austausch zwischen Anna Meier und Julian Zigerli hat sich seit der Besetzung von Julian Zigerli UPSTAIRS im Haus enSoie intensiviert. Aus dieser Schnittstelle resultierte der Gedanke einer gemeinsamen Kollektion. Die Idee war von Anfang an aus dem Fundus der beiden Brands Muster, Schnitte, Farben und Verarbeitungstechniken zu verwenden, neu zusammenzusetzen um Neues und gleichzeitig Wiedererkennbares zu schaffen.

Entstanden sind Mäntel, Kleider, Hemden, Hosen, Jacken, Foulards, T-Shirts, Taschen, Portemonnaies, Schlüsselanhänger und Armbändeli in streng limitierter Auflage. Die Mäntel beispielsweise sind Unikate. Es gibt sie zwar in 12 verschiedenen Farben, aber jede Farbe nur einmal.

From us with love
Anna Meier und Julian Zigerli
