We are now well into 2015 and another year in Oleana’s history lies behind us. As far as we know, Oleana is still the youngest textile factory in Norway and we are now 23 years old! In other words we are “grown- ups” and ready for the big challenges!
We are proud to be able to tell everybody who are buying a product from Oleana, that every single garment is knitted and sewn at our factory in Ytre Arna, just outside Bergen.
Our big challenge is to be able to stick to a sustainable production in Norway and manage to compete with all those who are producing, or partly producing, in countries where the wages are much lower than in our part of the world. Many products with the label “Made in Norway” often means “ Designed in Norway”.
Challenges are however not rare in our business, but that is what keeps us alive!
