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.

Made in Britain - Ripley Pini Dress in Black
So good! Perfect fit, great quality.
Only wish there was a version without the contrast stitching to make it more versatile for me personally.
So comfy, lovely shape :) True to size, maybe a little on the roomier side, perfect for layering if you want to stick a jumper underneath :D
Really love this dress and length - please make in other colours and corduroy too
Love this dress. It's a great length and really versatile - I'm wearing it with tights and boots at the moment, but I'll be able to adapt it for warmer weather too. Plus I can breastfeed my son in it, so it gets his approval too :)
