Mail art cardigan is the signature style of Oleana SS21, it draws inspiration from patchwork and collage art. Features a vintage Ytre Arna postcard, bold florals in 70’s style, and a few other patterns from Oleanas archive – both new and very old. The patches are knitted seamlessly in jacquard intarsia technique. It has two pockets in front, and semi-transparent glass buttons on a grosgrain button band.


The Norwegian word for linking is ‘kettling’, although this is originally a German word meaning ‘chain together’. On the round linking machines, linkers attach the front and back sections of the garment together at the shoulders. They patiently thread each individual stitch onto each needle, ensuring that once the first section is on, the corresponding stitch for the second section meets it. The machine then ‘links’ these together with a chain stitch. The same process applies to the trims down the front of the garment and around the neckline.
