Lilla Lane is not about fashion, but creativity. The sheer pleasure of designing is the force behind the company. Thora grew up in the Hamptons surrounded by artists, renowned and struggling. Her mother Lilla, of whom the company is named, influenced her with not only an appreciation of art, but also by showing her that art can be expressed in many forms. Thoras appreciation of the Balinesse culture and their unique skills is evident in her work, from the accessory pieces to the design of her stores. With more and more industrialization, Lilla Lane fights to keep a handmade feature in each piece.
