Sarah Watkinson-Yull first founded Yull in 2011 whilst studying at university. Sarah vision was to create a stylish shoe label where all the manufacturing could take place in the UK, in the hope that she could bring skills back tot he country and help balance the trade deficit.
Despite industry experts telling her it wasn't possible, she was determined to prove otherwise, and thanks to funding from the Prince's Trust, Sarah was able to realise her dream.
Yull is now one of the only independent shoe brands manufacturing shoes in Britain. Add into the mix the fact that all the shoes are funky, fun and practical, and made of beautiful quality leather, and this is one impressive label. So much so that Yull has won a series of awards, from Lloyd's Enterprise Award to grants from the European Development Fund. And in 2015 it was nominated for a National Business Award.
So by owning a pair of Yull shoes, not only are you supporting Made In Britain, but your feet will look fabulous - what more could you want really?!
Our Founder Says:
"I'm proud to introduce Yull shoes to the-Bias-Cut.com. I love their Made In Britain ethos, and the fact all of the leather skins used are a by-product of the meat industry. The fact that the shoes are equally as fabulous as the brand itself makes it a win-win!"
