Part 1: The Hero's Journey: From Seeking to Calling

Finding Herself and Early Steps in Art

Ani Han has been passionate about drawing and creating since childhood. Art became her sanctuary, a place where she could express her feelings and thoughts. This passion was the first step on her path to her true calling.

University Studies: The Struggle Between Stability and Passion

Despite her love for art, Ani succumbed to societal pressure and enrolled in a university program in crisis management in banking. Studying was a real challenge: she felt out of place. But Ani did not give up. She found a way to combine her studies with self-education in design, deciding to be as efficient as possible in her studies to free up more time for creativity.

The Decision to Follow Her Dream: Transitioning from Banking to Design

After graduating from university, Ani faced an important choice: a stable career in banking or a risky but enticing path as a designer. Her inner voice and passion for art prevailed. Ani decided to follow her dream, starting with small projects and constantly learning. This decision was a turning point in her life, opening the door to true happiness and self-fulfillment.

The Importance of Intuition in the Creative Process

Intuition became a key element in Ani's creative process. She relies on her inner sense, creating not just beautiful things, but pieces with deep meaning and emotional connection with people.

Principles of Harmony and Minimalism

Ani believes it is important to create products that not only please the eye but also provide comfort in daily use. Every detail matters, and true luxury lies in the combination of aesthetics and functionality, creating items that bring joy to everyday life.

Responsible Material Use and Sustainability

Enso uses only high-quality materials known for their exceptional durability and wear resistance. The craftsmanship involved in each piece makes every item unique and personal.
