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!

Linking

The Norwegian word for linking is ‘kettling’, although this is originally a German word meaning ‘chain together’. On the round linking machines, linkers attach the front and back sections of the garment together at the shoulders. They patiently thread each individual stitch onto each needle, ensuring that once the first section is on, the corresponding stitch for the second section meets it. The machine then ‘links’ these together with a chain stitch. The same process applies to the trims down the front of the garment and around the neckline.

Our ambition is to produce some of the most beautiful clothes in the world, by focusing on high quality and excellent design. This requires advanced techniques, lots of handwork and the most skilled people.
