"There is no real beauty without some slight imperfection"
A new addition to the Lucy & Yak range. 'Umi' is made from 100% organic cotton, but we wanted cotton with character. We chose a cotton that is woven by hand on an old loom to give it that character. Every piece has slight imperfections and every piece is unique. We didn't stop there though. All our 'Umi's' are handmade, that means the same tailor worked on each 'Umi' from start to finish. The end result is a beautiful, individual dungaree.
'Umi' is also Double woven, which makes it durable and a mid weight thickness that is both warm and breathable.
'Umi' has our signature cut which perfectly accomodates your hips if you're lucky enough to have some but also gives the shape of hips even if you don't. The ankles are tapered, but can comfortably be rolled up which is the look we're into at the minute, as you can tell. The straps are adjustable, with a simple knot at the front. 'Umi's' have two large side pockets and one large pocket on the chest, with our Lucy & Yak label sewn on.

I am new to L&Y and bought 2 pairs of dungarees to see what all the fuss was about. I had no idea they'd BOTH be winners!! I've been wearing the Umi's at least twice a week. Incredibly comfy, functionable, effortless dressing. The material is much thinner than expected, but perfect for the Australian weather now. Love the ethics and transparency, I will be back :)
Organic 'Umi' Cotton Dungarees in Maroon
Great fit, super comfy, beautiful colour. :)
I love my dungarees and I thought the price was reasonable, I love the colour, the feel and how easy they are to dress up and down! But I find the body part too short! I’m only 5’4 but I have a long torso and the dungaree bit and straps came below my chest which I find a bit annoying , other than that I think they’re really nice
They are amazingly comfy and I love wearing them. I want them in every colour!
