About Us

Thank you for visiting KUKShades.

My name is Candice & I run this small family business based in the Eden Valley in Cumbria. I am surrounded by hills, but a love of the beach and the coastal way of life is what inspired the business. 

Our ethos is to bring you quality beachwear and holiday accessories from boutique designers & UK brands. We insist on ethical production and like to know the story, from start to finish of the productswe sell. I have built close relationships with the brands and know their products inside and out. This relationship means I can hand-pick from their collections and choose items that offer something different, something you wouldn't find in larger high street stores. At KUKShades you can be assured of getting the highest quality at the best prices without compromise. 

KUKShades is committed to excellent customer service. Our highest priority is too you and our brands and we will go out of our way to ensure your visit and buying experience is second to none. 

KUKShades and we has not gone un-noticed by some of the UKs biggest retail experts. We are a recent Theo Paphitis - Small Business Sunday Winner and KUKShades was handpicked by Jaqueline Gold as a #WOW Winner for women in business. It makes me very proud to be recognised by  such prestigious entrepreneurs. 

In 2018 KUKShades was handpicked to join the Small Biz 100, for the acclaimed Small Business Saturday initiative. We were the only business in Cumbria to be chosen and felt very proud to fly the flag for Cumbrian small business.

Thank you for taking the time to get to 

 know KUKShades and I hope you enjoy browsing the beach bags, flip flops and beachwear.

Wishing you blue skies and sunny days... always!
