Dear customers and friends,
Ines Boesch studied Textile Design at the “Kunstgewerbeschule” in Zurich. After completing her education she began designing for EnSoie, and very soon became EnSoie’s sole designer. Her design and creations are unmistakable. She designed EnSoie’s entire product palette for 10 years, until, finally, in 2002 she decided she was ready to open her own store.
Ines Boesch & Co. opened at Weggengasse 6 in 2002. Since then she has been presenting her creations as unique pieces, handmade and painted by her, or in smallest series designed by her and produced by hand under her own name exclusively for this single location.
Ines Boesch & Co. works only with small scale producers where production is for the most part done by hand. Her fabrics and foulards, which, once meticulously designed by her, are hand silk-screen printed in the mountains in one of the last remaining cloth printers still working by hand in Switzerland. The prints and fabrics are of the highest quality. Her ceramics are produced by hand in Poland by a small team of people working almost exclusively for IB&CO and who work in very close collaboration with Ines. The couture work is executed by a very small atelier in India working exclusively for IB&CO and which is run as a social entrepreneurship uplifting the employees and their families.
There is no doubt that you are receiving something of value when you purchase an IB&CO item, because everyone working in or with IB&CO are passionate and uncompromising; first and foremost Ines herself.
