Welcome to Lucy & Yak! We’re so excited you’re joining us on this incredible journey we’re on! Ever wondered where our story began? Well, we’ll let you in on a secret, our story is a little different to most brands, but then again, being a little different is kind of our thing! We’re here to change things up, and be an example for how kind human interaction can create something magical. When people from different cultures meet and respect each other for who they are, we can make the world a teeny bit better. Our mission is to create a community that brings people together, and what better way to do that than through colourful, fun clothing, that you can wear with pride and scream out loud... “I know who made my clothes”
So, where did it all begin? Lucy & Yak officially launched in the summer of 2017, but our story starts way back before then when Chris and I (Lucy) quit our jobs to travel the world. In New Zealand, we spent our days on the beach sewing tobacco pouches from old clothes to travellers – they loved them so much we still get messages about them today! And this was the start of a community that runs through the core of Lucy & Yak. When we eventually returned to the UK, we bought our much-loved ‘Yak’ a van that we lived in and sold vintage clothes out of the back of to get by. It was our vintage selling days that made us realise we actually had an eye for fashion, we’re not designers but our minds were full of designs and so when we went on our next trip, in the back of our minds we knew that if we found someone to make our designs a reality then we would go for it!
