2019 Chamber Business Awards regional win for Online Fashion Retailer

Lucy and Yak, an online fashion retailer located in Wombwell, has been crowned one of the winners in the Yorkshire & Humber region heats of the Chamber Business Awards 2019.

The High Growth Business of the Year winner, Lucy and Yak will now go forward to represent Yorkshire & Humber region in the national finals, which take place in London in November.

After presenting the award to the team Andrew Denniff, Chief Executive of Barnsley & Rotherham Chambers of Commerce said:

“The Chamber Business Awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the best of British business. Across the country, there are firms of all sizes and sectors thriving and showing their innovation and adaptability, even in the midst of turbulent times.

“Our businesses communities continue to generate prosperity and opportunity so it’s only right that we support and shout about the fantastic things they are doing.

“Each year the calibre of applicants impresses our judges, and this pool of entrants was no different. All our finalists should be proud of their success in reaching this stage and we wish them the very best of luck.”

Lucy & Yak began life down under in 2017 in New Zealand, after hours of sewing on the beach, making tobacco pouches from old clothes which were sold to travellers. After a few years of travelling, Lucy and Chris came back to the UK, buying a van that they named ‘Yak’. To get by, Lucy and Chris sold vintage clothing from Yak, which is when they realised, they had an eye for fashion. So together they made 30 pairs of dungarees, which sold out in a matter of hours, they made 100 more and the same happened. Now, Lucy & Yak have a team of people working in their Barnsley warehouse and out of their newly built factory in India.
