We are SO excited to announce the launch of our Made in Britain Capsule Collection!
Meet Ripley - our wonderful Pini Dress, made right here in Britain by our amazing team.

Layer her over your fave tees and jumpers, dress her up with smart shoes or down with converse, style with our without a belt!
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Following on from the success of working with our partners and teams in India, we wanted to bring skilled textile jobs back to Yorkshire with the same ethical production ethos. Yorkshire is our home and was once famous for its thriving textile industry - Barnsley itself used to be home to thousands of garment workers and was a huge source of identity and community for the area.
As the factories closed down, it left many skilled workers unemployed and no longer able to use their skills and years of experience and knowledge. We believe creating and sustaining well paid and rewarding jobs is one of the best ways to benefit a community and that’s what we try to do both in India and the UK.
This second Made in Britain collection consists of 9 pieces and includes reworked pini dresses, midi pinis and cargo trousers, featuring signature Lucy & Yak design statements and new colourways lime green and strawberry pink. We’ve used practical hardwearing fabrics (thick 100% cotton twill) from a local Yorkshire family run business who have been developing high quality fabrics since 1901. With large pockets, classic shapes and utility details with modern twists on traditional colour pallets. The collection is shot at an old local colliery, paying homage to the old industries of Barnsley and the communities that live and work here.
This is a limited run of only 90 pieces in each style - we have an expanded collection and further sizing in the pipeline for the future.

Very comfortable and good size of pockets. Love them!
It looks more like an apron than a dress
quite expensive for what it is.
A birthday present from my husband. I love this so much! I bought size 8 and usually take a Xs or S depending on product in Lucy and Yaks. It’s a perfect fit. Length is perfect. I’ve always considered the mini pinis too short for me so this is spot on. Loved the fact that it’s made in Britain too. Beautiful detailing on the dress. Will be part of my wardrobe for many years and when it’s worn out it’ll become workwear for creative projects. Thank you Lucy and Yaks!
She loves it! Only comment is she would prefer material with a bit more give in it
