Mary Jane Lane handcrafts limited edition suspenders for men and women.A one of a kind product is made by combining locally sourced durable hardware, re-purposed/vintage materials and a passion for the details. Named after the designer's grandmother, Mary Jane Lane creates a classic product that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Designer, Katie Calcaterra learned to sew from her mother when she was eight years old. It's a skill, a past time and a joy that has been passed down from generation to generation in her family. Katie acquired a degree in fashion design and has worked as a costume designer in the television, film and commercial industry for the past six years in NYC. Much of Katie's childhood visits to her grandmother's house were spent digging through the attic and finding amazing treasures like tweed and herringbone fabrics picked up from world traveling, vintage patterns, antique leather buttons & handmade clothing.
She inspired Katie to name her line after her. She knew it was meant to be when she found a stack of her Grandmother's clothing labels in her sewing box.
