2019 is a very special year for all at Enesco, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. Having purchased Lilliput Lane and Border Fine Arts the company was registered as Enesco European Giftware Group in January 1994, more recently known as Enesco Limited.
Together the two companies joined forces and moved to a new headquarters in Carlisle that remains our home today. Back then, at the start of our story, it was the height of the collectibles era, with names such as Cherished Teddies, Lilliput Lane and Border Fine Arts as part of our portfolio.
While times may have changed, the narrative around our vision and values has not; we’re still the leaders in both classic and contemporary collectibles as well as the gift-giving market, seeing our portfolio expand to include licensed products from big-name brands such as Disney, Beatrix Potter and Peppa Pig. Add to this the exclusive distribution of Gund, Willow Tree and brand new for 2019 LIHIT Lab.
So, while somethings stay the same, our story continues, as we look forward to the next chapter in the history of Enesco and being the number one at delivering gift giving all wrapped up in the UK.
