Explore the story

The story behind the textile adventure Devold takes us all the way back to 1853. That's when the visionary entrepreneur Ole Andreas Devold started the production of Devold, which has kept both young and old warm for generations. The Devold Factory has been awarded the Olav's Rose (A quality label for experience offerings based on Norwegian cultural heritage) for its experiences that convey Norwegian cultural heritage. DEVOLD MUSEUM Norway's oldest knitwear producer with 170 years of industrial history. POWER STATION The Devold Factory has its own power station and was one of Norway's first power plants. Let yourself be inspired by historical innovation that still powers the factory.


KANTINA The factory's café was established in between shifts and was the factory's canteen and meeting place. Today, we serve locally roasted coffee, homemade snacks, baked goods, and cakes. We have a liquor license and offer both the daily meal and pleasant events.
