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.

It looks so nice, the shape is laid back and the color is real extra. The only thing I didn't notice, is that because you pull it on with no zippers or buttons, the waist is pretty loose on me. I think it's gonna work great with tight tops for a more feminin look and loose sweaters for a more masculine look and that works well for me, I'm just more used to an overall dress with slim waist, so I'll have to get used to it. I like to have the more "masculine" option, though, I can play more with shape. Can't wait to try to style it in different ways. I know it'll stand out!
Absolutely LOVE my Lucy & Yak lime dress - it’s a must have!
The only thing I would say is if you like tighter fitting clothes go a size down. I’m normally a size UK 12 but could fit in a 10 for this dress - not a criticism though as I prefer baggier clothes, just a heads up!
Made in Britain - Ripley Pini Dress in Lime
I want to begin this by saying that I love overalls/dungarees. Long leg length, shorts length, capris, dresses-- i LOVE them. And I have a lot of them ranging from fancy pants companies to vintage finds. This pini dress is one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES! The length is perfect-- not too long, not too short, the material is thick and feels durable and I trust that I wont have to worry about tearing or damaging the fabric. It is such a brilliant color and the straps mean I can adjust the length and style them different ways-- I have loved literally every single item I've gotten from Lucy & Yak, but I especially love these, my only problem is-- can you guys come out with more colors/prints for the pini dresses?
Absolutely love my Ripley Pini dress, first purchase from Lucy and Yak and I am now a fan. So well made, washed brilliantly . Happy, happy, happy!
