Behind the Label

My name is Angeli Jackson, I am the founder of SunSibility, and mum to Atalya Eloise - born 25th October 2010.  Here Atalya is modelling the Stingray sunsuit and matching cap that we took on holiday in January 2011.  It comes highly recommended !!


   
My passion for starting my own label began back in 2001 when I realised there was a niche in the market for fashionable sun protection and the opportunity for customers to get all their sun protective needs at one place.  My research focussed on those who could not go out in the sunlight and how difficult a simple task is to many who are very sun sensitive, something that others take for granted and what a difference a few key items can make in enhancing your day to day life outdoors.

I wanted to create a sun protective range that was practical and functional as opposed to 'impractical' designs that come down the catwalk.  A brand that designs for 'real people in the real world'. 

Born in Stoneleigh, Surrey in 1978 to parents Karina & Raish Khatri, I studied product development for the fashion industries at London College of Fashion and graduated with a BA ( Hons ) - 2 : 1 in 2000 and created the collection the following year with a business start up loan from the Princes Trust.

I married Darren in 2003 in a sugar mill in St James, Barbados after being together since I was eighteen.  I have two sisters Anita & Sheela and am proud Auntie to my gorgeous nieces & nephews - Nico, Lauren, Ellora, Arun, Anaiya & Maison.

The success of SunSibility is down to listening to customer's requirements and designing collections or finding solutions externally and bringing them direct to the consumer.  I am still very hands on in each individual process of research & realisation through to final product.

It is always great to hear from customers, If you would like to discuss anything at all, please
contact me direct.

Best Wishes,

Angeli

    "Because of my extreme sensibility to UVA, I found the cape that you made for me incredible. I've used it in all sorts of circumstances. I live by the sea, so it is a great cover up when sitting at the beach, and I've used it on long car journeys (I'm disabled so have to sit in front with the driver!), around the house on hot days, and as a bed cover during the summer months. I just could not manage without it!"

    I have been extremely pleased with the clothing I have purchased from Sunsibility. I have had many skin cancers removed due to the drugs I have to take following a kidney transplant. Wearing 50 UVA clothing when outdoors I feel I am doing all I can to protect myself.

    Mr Clatworthy, Taunton

    After I had viewed online the various hats that I was interested in I sent an email to SunSibility. In no time at all I had a reply that was very helpful and contained not only information on hats but also other helpful ideas on what might fulfil my needs.What struck me was the interest the person I was dealing with had in wanting me to feel satisfied with my enquiry. The excellent customer care was very refreshing, and I now have a top quality product as well. Top marks for SunSibility. When I wear my hat in Corsica and Sardinia I will grin.Mr Clatworthy, Taunton

    It went perfectly with my outfit and, because the colours were so great, it went with loads of my other clothes so there was hardly a day it didn’t get worn!

    Elaine Smith, Preston

    I was so pleased with the suit, it was really comfortable to wear and surprisingly cool. I now feel that thanks to Sunsibility and the Stingray suit, I can go on holidays to the Tropics without a worry; whereas after the issue I had with Melanoma, I had thought I'd never be able to go to places like that again. I could enjoy all the water sports without a care of sunburn and it's potential skin hazards.

    I was very impressed with the sun protection they provide. I felt absolutely safe, and at the same time, the fabric was cool and comfortable. The breeze passed through easily, making them very pleasant to wear. Companies like yours are a god-send to me, and I would be happy to help spread the word.
