Winner of Best Small Trade Stand at Flintham Ploughing Match 2018!
A love of beautiful, functional fabric and colour inspires the designs from The Pesky Partridge.
Everything is lovingly designed and made by hand for you by Lucy Kay.
I am passionate about tweed and the benefits of natural fibres. All of my tweed is sourced from Yorkshire mills that have been going for hundreds of years or Harris tweed which is produced by hand in the Outer Hebrides and has protected status as a unique product.
I am proud to be an independent business and support others where possible. My labels are printed only 5 miles away and circular leather patches are embossed in Cheshire. The solid brass for my luxury keyrings is cast and engraved in Cheshire, buttons are sourced from Jones buttons in Nottingham, a treasure trove of a store, trading since 1909.
About The Pesky Partridge
Hello I am Lucy, the designer maker behind The Pesky Partridge. Every item is made on our farm in Nottinghamshire using top quality Yorkshire/ Harris Tweed, organic cotton and other loveliness I can get my hands upon! I source as much as possible from the UK and use local businesses.
The Pesky Partridge started as I wanted a career that fitted around family life. After being a land agent for 12 years it was my passion for sewing and creating that I wanted to pursue.
I have always sewn many of my own clothes and home furnishings after being taught from a young age by my mum.
Initially I wanted a quirky tweed jacket; but as there were none on the market that correctly fitted taller ladies she made her I decided to make my own. This jacket got so many comments that we decided it was an idea worth pursuing.
So The Pesky Partridge was born! I aim to create beautiful bespoke clothing that people can cherish and enjoy.
I am a firm believer in the properties of natural fibres produced sustainably and the reduction of waste. I aim to use the best materials I can and save all my off cuts which then get a new lease of life in any way I can think of.
Welcome to my journey with The Pesky Partridge.
Our products are all made on our farm in Nottinghamshire using top quality Yorkshire/ Harris Tweed, organic cotton and other loveliness I can get my hands upon! Everything is sourced from local businesses or within the UK.
