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. 

My ultimate aim is to bring you quality beachwear and holiday accessories from boutique designers and UK brands. I have a close relationship with our 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 hight street stores. At KUKShades you can be assured of getting the highest quality at the best prices without compromise. 

Customer service and quality products are my highest priority and I will go out of my way to ensure your visit and buying experience is second to none. 

I an extemely proud of KUKShades and it seems that the store has not gone un-noticed from some of the UKs biggest retail experts. We are a recent Theo Paphitis - Small Business Sunday Winner and 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. 

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!
