PRETTIE LANES faces contemporary challenges in the
fashion industry. The materials and notions for the designs are mainly sourced in Europe. Furthermore, a key value is to use natural, biodegradable fabrics instead of plastic fabrics (i.e. no
Polyester, no Elasthane) Each piece by Prettie Lanes is 100% made in Switzerland - one piece at a time.
