The flowering tree of a Hydrangea in Solveig Hisdals garden was the inspiration for this pattern. The tree with huge flower heads was perfectly bold and beautiful. During the creative process of getting the pattern to a finished design Solveig decided to do a twist and turn the pattern inside out and develop it further from there. This creates a more contemporary look, with the background colour shifting while the flowers stay the same colour.
Jubilee Collection 25 years
Our biggest dream was to prove that it could be possible to produce beautiful clothing in a high cost country like Norway. We really wanted to make an effort, investing in the very best designs and sustainable qualities. We wanted to create new jobs and a safe and good working environment where people could be happy and develop personally. We had so many ideas and dreams we wanted to realize.
25 years later, we have proudly presented two jubilee collections to customers all over the world, created by Oleana’s own designer, Solveig Hisdal. Oleana is alive and we still want to think big!
