Meet the people

[object Object]

We are makers, and creators. We are dreamers that go against the stream. We are designers that create new universes. We are economists and mechanics. We are product developers and quality controllers. We are handymen and handy women. Programmers that experiment and invent, knitters that operate the machines - and seamstresses operating with needles. We are passionate about wool and colour, and explorers when it comes to style.

Our people come from all over the world, and it’s their craftmanship and creativity that is the backbone of our production. We struggle together, solve problems together and grow together. We celebrate the little things in life, like birthday cakes, a new floral pattern, or the colour of the sky when the sun rises outside the factory windows.

Together we are a powerful machinery, where every person contributes with their unique knowledge and presence. We are Oleana.
