Lotties? (can't find website for it)
I like disana for a newborn. It's a very simple and cheap system.
I'm sorry I can't direct you to any reviews. The only ones I know of are in danish.
But there are *so* many European brands... Popolino, Tots Bots, Nappy Nation, Little Lambs, Yummies, Babeco, Bambino Mio, Hempresto, clwt-twt, Lollipop, Bearbehinds, bambenio, Minkis, Littlekiwi, Puddlepants, Woollywraps, Ellashouse, Nature Babies....
I'm sure I've left off loads
Disana are great in that they fit any size and shape!
I ordered mine from Ebay from the US and the shipping and customs tax was about 4x the price of the diapers the prefolds themselves were cheap, but yikes!
I used BambinoMio before, which are the only prefolds I can find here (in fact the only kind of cloth diapers sold in baby shops over here), but they were only OK and actually quite expensive too (160 euro for 24 prefolds and 3 wraps xs and 3 wraps s).
In fact, even with the shipping and tax, the prefolds I ordered from the USwere only slightly more expensive, and I like them better (a lot softer, and more absorbent too I think). But if we ever need a bigger size, it would be nice to get them cheaper!
Anyway, I've also ordered from a Belgian webshop. I ordered Bummis super brites wraps from them (here, they call them "Bummis Super Color") Interestingly enough, they have P'tit Dessous tags on them??
They do really look like the Super Brites (of course I've only seen pics of those), and are made in Canada. Weird.

There are also several WAHM's who make custom made cloth diapers, PUL covers, wool covers etc. I am one of those. My website is: www.lytse-poppe.biz. My website is in English and Dutch and in high need of an update :-)
Unfortunately, it's very hard to find prefolds here. I basically found someone to buy them for me on a military base, but that'll only work if you have a base around you AND someone willing to break the rules.
I use the two-part system (inner diaper and a waterproof cover).
I have used a variety of brands and I think the best are Imse Vimse (but they don't have velcro) and Tots Bots Bamboozle s-t-r-e-t-c-h. I have also used Popolini but I dont like them. They are all "universal" size from 5 to 10-11 kg. For the covers - I think the best brand is Blueberry, because they have 2 rows of snaps, fit from newborn to 12-13kg and have good quality.
It's not difficult to make your own diaper if you have the materials and a simple sewing machine.
I started to make inner diapers for my baby - from microcotton towel, using ribbons and velcro. First it was for me, then several more for my close friends ... and we are happy using them for 3-4 months now.
Lately I decided to sell them through a site for handmade stuff. There is also an option to ship from Bulgaria to EU countries for a relatively low price with no need to pay customs taxes.

I hope I'm not braking any rules by posting this link.
