Our Story

Jake Ellis is a new sunglasses brand based on the Isle of Wight in the UK, For Life's Adventures.

Founded in April 2020 by two friends Jake and Ellis, both born on the island, with a passion for adventure and great sunglasses. We have three core values; Quality, Style, and Affordability. Sunglasses that look and feel great at a reasonable price. Our sunglasses are for those who live for adventure and enjoy the outdoors. Whether you are more the urban or nature-loving adventurer, we welcome you to join the Jake Ellis Family.

About Jake and Ellis

We are Jake and Ellis, two old school friends who were lucky enough to be born and raised on the picturesque Isle of Wight.

Growing up on an Island, the outdoors was our playground of choice. We could be found playing sports such as hockey, football, bodyboarding, and mountain biking, or chilling out on the many beaches.

Jake Ellis started because of our joint-passion for the outdoors and simply: quality sunglasses at a reasonable price. We combined forces; Jake's manufacturing and engineering background, and Ellis' business and marketing experience, to form the Isle of Wight's first and only sunglasses brand - Jake Ellis.

We are looking forward to welcoming you into the Jake Ellis Family.
