Oleana of Norway's Signe Aarhus: Keynote Lecture with Reception
Oct 12, 2019
5:00pm - 7:00pm
Event date

Oleana is a family company founded in 1992 by Signe Aarhus, Hildegunn Møster, and Kolbjørn Valestrand, with the aim of creating new jobs in Norway’s textile industry. While most of Western Europe’s production had, by that time, moved to countries with far cheaper labor, Oleana went against the main-stream business model, embracing the fair-made philosophy.

Hear from Oleana founder Signe Aarhus and learn how Oleana made its mark on Norway’s long and rich tradition of textile production and patterned knitwear in wool.

Cost: $50, includes light hors d’oeuvres; pre-registration required. Tickets will be available at the door.
