Re:Yak 2023 (and Beyond!)

It’s safe to say that when we launched Re:Yak, we were blown away by the positive response and support from the Yak community.

Everywhere we looked, people were upcycling their favourite Yaks or making the most of our recirculation partnership with vintage icons Beyond Retro.

Keeping clothes out of landfill and loved for longer – you love to see it!

So in 2023, we knew it was up to us to go bigger and better. To share more inspo, grow our network and find more ways than ever for Yakkers to give their clothes a new lease of life.

Re:Yak Studio

When it comes to upcycling, sometimes you just need a little inspiration to get you started, and that’s where our Re:Yak Studio comes in.

Yak staff and community members came together to get creative, make their mark, upcycle some Yaks, and have some fun! Whether you’re a keen painter or a total craft newbie – there’s plenty of different techniques to really make your clothes stand out.

We had a blast, and we know you will too!

(Im)Perfect Yak Sale

We kicked off the year with an always popular (Im)Perfect Yak Sale in-store, where Yakkers could find exclusive samples, old favourites and a few bargains too!

The sale allows Yak lovers to pick up new pieces for less than usual, whilst also keeping more clothes in circulation for longer.

Keep your eyes peeled for ANOTHER sale online later this month, but in the meantime why not check out the (Im)perfect Yaks on our Depop page, or in your nearest Yak shop.

Re:Yak Buyback

Launching 23rd January, we’re VERY excited about our latest Re:Yak initiative.

Customers will be able to bring back any Lucy & Yak item to a Lucy & Yak store, return it in any clean condition, and receive a Lucy & Yak voucher to spend online or in-store.

Don’t worry! Even if the clothes are too damaged to sell, we’ll handle the recycling to make sure they don't end up in landfill.

Stay tuned for more information in the next few weeks.

Re:Yak Marketplace / FB Community Group

If you’re new to the world of Lucy & Yak, we HIGHLY recommend checking out our official Re:Yak Marketplace Facebook group. Here you can buy, sell, trade and creatively upcycle Yaks with like-minded people, extending the life of each item and meeting some lovely humans while you’re at it.

Looking for more inspo? Then our amazing Facebook Community group is the place for you! The loveliest creative Yakkers are all there ready to share ideas and support your Re:Yak project, plus there’s loads of fun challenges to get involved with like the latest #ReYakRewearChallenge.
