Oleana

(Oct 05, 2019 - Jan 15, 2020)

Renowned for their exquisitely crafted clothing, the Oleana fashion house was founded in 1992 with the mission to create new jobs in Norway's textile industry. While the rest of Western Europe had switched to cheap production methods and supplies, Oleana stood out by returning to traditional methods and materials to create their knitwear. This exhibition features the story and textiles behind Oleana's fair-made philosophy.
