Janus – the belief in permanence and consideration

Wool: Nature's miracle fibre. Wool is the result of nature's own research and development over millions of years. This remarkable material is both degradable and renewable, meaning it harmonizes with nature in a way few other materials do. Wool's unique properties, such as thermoregulation and moisture transport, provide a material that is both comfortable and durable. In addition, wool is the most recycled and reused textile in the world, further reinforcing its role as an excellent, durable material.

Knitted in Norway - care from thread to finished garment

At a time when many have chosen to move production to low-cost countries, Janus has deliberately chosen to invest at home. Our factory at Espeland in Bergen is the heart of our production, where we knit around 90% of our garments. Here, renewable energy and strict Norwegian environmental requirements are combined to minimize our impact on nature. As a testament to our environmental integrity, a river rich in salmon flows right past the factory. We only use mulesing-free wool and take care of the working conditions in our sewing factory in Europe, which is wholly owned by Janus' parent company, where we aim to sew 100% of our garments, which means we can stand proudly behind every garment we produce. All trimmings are recycled to minimize waste and maximize resource utilization. We are also working to complete the OEKO-TEX® STeP certification, which will confirm our commitment to a fully responsible production chain.

Designed to last

Janus has more than 125 years of experience in knitting, and it is this expertise that enables us to produce garments of the highest quality. We believe that a good product is a product that lasts, and our in-depth knowledge of materials and production techniques means that we can create garments that maintain their quality over time. All our products are approved according to OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100, which ensures that they are free of substances harmful to health.

A choice for you and for the future

When you choose Janus, you choose a garment that is the result of our belief in durability, quality and concern for both people and the planet. With our commitment to continuous improvement and responsible practice, you can feel confident that your choice is an investment in a more caring future for us all.
