About Raquel Surally Wallace

I am Co-founder of The Lost Lanes an ethical marketplace, bringing together the best in ethical designers and businesses in the UK. 

I was a classic high street shopper but when I started to learn more about how things are made and I started to ask the question "who made this?" I wasn't entirely convinced with the answers. 

Our fairly made marketplace is just the start of something wonderful, and I'm proud to list the sellers we do.  We are aiming to disrupt the high street, shopping ethical doesn't mean changing who you are it just means someone has worked hard to create something with quality, love and consideration. 

We are The Lost Lanes, we are Made By People.
