Anyone walking into our Enesco showroom, located in Carlisle will quickly realise our transformation from a ‘traditional and collectible’ giftware company into a major player in the contemporary gift and home market — specialising in licenced products, we are also expanding our horizons into high quality ceramic giftware, as well as ladies and men’s accessories.
One of our strengths is the diverse retail distribution offered throughout the UK and Europe, all serviced by the award-winning customer service department based at our Carlisle offices.
Enesco is renowned worldwide for innovative and humorous gifts, stylish home décor, imaginative garden wares and desirable collectibles. Our outstanding selection of high quality products encompasses well known licences for all-time favourites such as Beatrix Potter, Disney, Classic Winnie the Pooh, Boo, Grumpy Cat, Pusheen, Peanuts, Designs by Lolita and most recently Hallmark and Flower Fairies.
Included in the Enesco family is Gund — America’s most prestigious soft toy company — with a heritage that reaches back to 1898. Famous for creating the world’s most huggable soft bears and animals, Gund’s ranges include Baby Gund, Gund Seasonal as well as classic teddy bears, soft and activity toys for young children and licensed ranges based on the mischievous characters from Beatrix Potter, Sesame Street, Boo, the world’s cutest dog, Grumpy Cat and Pusheen.
Engaging and entertaining gifts, accessories and homewares inspired by the antics of animals, contemporary art and nostalgia are just part of our diverse array of product. The Border Fine Arts Studio Collection — which includes the new Kitchy & Co licence — and the Contemporary Gift Collection offers ceramics, clocks and resin designs to complement all lifestyles and all homes. Moreover, the Studio Collection incorporates naturalistic and humorous studies of animals and birds. We are the exclusive distributor for Himalayan Candles and the Demdaco Portfolio Collection, which features their Kelly Rae Roberts and Art Hearts collections.
Sentiments , whether conveying heartfelt emotions of love or more tongue-in-cheek — are the impetus behind gifts for the moments when it’s hard to put into words feelings of friendship or affection. In the Willow Tree Collection Susan Lordi’s sense of compassion infuses each figurine. Witty gifts for all ages and all occasions from birth to wedding anniversaries are included in the Enesco Gift catalogue such as Our Name is Mud and Lolita.
The Lolita glassware brand, known and loved for its artistic, festive and fun designs has joined the Enesco family. This exciting collaboration sees fresh designs for the hand-painted glassware collection famed for its mouth-watering cocktail recipes on the bottom of each wine glass.
America’s classic sweetheart, Betty Boop, has been given a modern twist by international pop artist Romero Britto, and the Disney by Romero Britto collection captures the fun and whimsy of best-loved Disney characters in the iconic, bold and colourful designs of Brazilian artist Romero Britto, creating a new array of dynamic and trend forward contemporary product for Disney and Britto enthusiasts alike. Enchanting Disney is a series of figurines and a selection of functional home accessories featuring many loved Disney characters. Rarely do you find a gift collection with such global appeal; Disney has this appeal and continues to grow in popularity each year.
