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.

Overall fantastic piece, the olive colour is easy to style and makes an outfit more interesting than black. However I have the say the straps are a bit too long and I don't really know how to tie it properly, and nicely.
There’s no denying this is a wonderfully made garment. However, the fit leaves a lot of be desired. I know these are supposed to be simple and unisex but I feel like if you’re not shaped a certain way these just aren’t for you. A bit more flare to the skirt could go a long way for those of use with shapely thighs. That being said, I do like mine and feel it’s good value.
Thanks for taking the time out to leave us a review, we really appreciate it. I'm sorry to hear that this wasn't the fit for you and it didn't meet your expectations. The Ripley are definitely a particular shape, and I'll be happy to raise the feedback to the design team.
But, I'm really glad to hear that you like how it was made and that you think it's good value! ❤️
Hope you have a lovely week,
I was amazed to receive my dress here in locked-down Melbourne in less than a week and I absolutely love it. Such good quality and comfortable, and the olive colour goes with everything. Will be wearing it all summer!
I love it and am hoping to order the longer LEIGH length one for the coming winter for someone who is living in scrubs at the minute it's so nice to put on a dress!!!
I love this dress! Colour is great and goes with so many things. The material is so soft but also durable. I added a belt to bring it in around my waist. Have worn it lots already with T-shirt’s, will be able to wear it with jumpers as it gets colder.
