Oleana - a role model for sustainable local production

One of just a few Norwegian dressmakers is located in Arna outside Bergen. The management with Gerda Sørhus Fuglerud at the forefront has a deliberate strategy. They didn't set out their production to low-cost countries, although it could have provided better margins. With new 3D technology their production is streamlined, resulting in less waste, less overproduction and local jobs sustained. Contemporary design and high quality are their hallmarks. Oleana is one of the shareholders in 3D Knitting & Technology.

Furniture and clothing

The apparel industry has been using the technology for several years, including shoe manufacturers such as Nike, who have come a long way with 3D knitted trainers. 

The possibilities are enormous, also for producing smart textiles for other health sectors. 

We have started collaborations with several clothing manufacturers who want to produce locally, and utilise the technology for more environmentally sound clothing production.
