Oleana presents…….

OLEANA celebrates their 20th birthday as they move into a new factory in a very old textile building in Ytre Arna outside Bergen in Norway.  Where else is there such a young knitting factory making such beautiful products?  Congratulations to Oleana and their designer, Solveig Hisdal!

OLEANA BLANKETS at the IDSwestSeptember 28-30 2012.  Find us in the Studio North, right beside The District where the ‘one of a kind’ show makes a debut.

We have a bundle of $5off vouchers for the show.

The IDSwest is a designer exhibition of the highest quality.  (Not to be confused with the Home Show.)

Raincoats from McVerdi have arrived from Denmark!

Some of you have been waiting since last spring for the arrival of raincoats from McVerdi in Denmark.  We have two styles in the wool lined rubberized coat – one with a hood and the other with a big collar.  We also have three thinsulate coat styles–two orange and one blue.  These will repel water, where the rubberized are totally water-proof.  And it isn’t actually rubber, it is Polyurethane Elastomer!
We also received some great dresses.  The were going fast today —


Just arrived!

Arrived today:  reversible Alpaca Vests – in three different colourways — have been brought back by popular demand! We only have nine of these, so if you wished you got one last year, now is your chance!  And that is a wonderful Oleana merino-silk pullover underneath – Style 169, scarf 174!

September Surprises

We are patiently waiting for the arrival of boxes of wonderful clothes for cooler, and yes, wet weather!  I have a list of people waiting for raincoats from McVerdi, and I am told they are on their way.  I will call, or post on facebook when they are here.

We have also received the Oleana Winter collection, but have been asked not to post any images until everybody has received the collection and the pictures are posted on the Oleana website.  So, if you are curious, you will have to drop by.

For those of you who ordered Pinafores from Cut Loose, they have also been sent today, so you will hear from me as soon as they arrive– probably in the middle of next week.  If you didn’t order one, I will have a few extras, so you still have a chance.

We will be showing Oleana blankets at the IDS at the Convention Centre the last weekend of September. This is a great show of truly quality design (not to be confused with the Home Show).  I have vouchers to give away that reduce the price of entry by $5.

I love finding really unique, beautifully made clothes to bring to Urbanity. Earlier this month we received an exclusive collection from D-due – a small Spanish company that makes clothes from extraordinary fabrics.  The styles are quirky, and in some cases they have hand drawings on them. Coming from Spain they are made for warmer and less cold weather.

We love winter in Urbanity.  We have surprises coming from Sweden, and Portugal!  And this past week we received a shipment oforganic merino wool tops and cardigans fromGudrunGudrun.  We have waited for this shipment since October 2011!!
