Known as “telekung” in Malaysia and “mukena” in Indonesia, SK prayer outfits never failed to receive an overwhelming consumer response in every expo they took part around London and United Kingdom dated to several years ago up till today. This year, SK brings forward to showcase selected new Premium Collection and Limited Edition Collection at the Muslim Lifestyle Expo 2017 runway stage on 28th & 29th of October 2017 in EventCity, Manchester which followed by becoming one of the sponsors for IlmFest London that took place on 4th of November 2017 at InterContinental London – The O2.
Following the current Muslimah needs that emphasises on comfort and elegance in daily basis outfit and during salah, SK comes out as the first prayer outfit brand with brilliant design innovation. Premium and practical make SK prayer outfit favourable and suitable to be worn as daily salah outfit or even for long duration wear during Umrah and Hajj.
Using carefully selected quality fabrics such as spun polyester, denim and 100% cotton, every collection is made with well fitted cut around the face with extra stretchable layering around the forehead and chin area which will easily fit your face without having to use an extra under cap to help the prayer outfit stay put around the face. Moreover, the alteration is well kept with its elegant choices of lace applied detailed following the comfort focused and syariah compliance.
SK Founder, Padzilah Enda Sulaiman was inspired to create premium prayer outfit when she began to understand the common dilemma faced by Muslimah when wearing poor quality prayer outfit during salah. How most of the prayer outfits in the market used to be in low quality fabric, easily smelled and got old
with stain and spots all over, hence, causing the same relentless routine having to constantly wash to maintain its cleanliness to be used for praying. Besides, these prayer outfits normally, if not commonly, would always be ill-fitted with poor cutting that did not stay put around the face and chin area with sometimes, a see-through material used. Covering aurah following a true Syariah compliance for this type of prayer outfit became questionable. Therefore, these problems somewhat motivate Padzilah to seek the best solution in creating the perfect prayer outfit for Muslimah. Nowadays, SK prayer outfit has also becoming an ideal gift for every Muslim women.
Saidatina Khadijah As An Inspiration
“’Siti Khadijah’ was chosen in honoring Prophet Muhammad PBUH beloved wife, Saidatina Khadijah. A great figure, a woman that defined perfection as a true Muslim woman, who is smart with an impressive entrepreneur skill, honest, kind and known with every possibly wonderful quality which aligned with our entrepreneurship goals that aren’t solely profitable-focused. Siti Khadijah is an inspiration for every modern Muslim woman. Therefore, I picked that beautiful name to brand our prayer outfit hoping that I
could provide consumer with a world quality prayer outfit at the same time educating them about consumerism and entrepreneurship,” said SK Founder, Padzilah Enda Sulaiman. In addition, through her business, she also has her own goal to help as many Muslim women as she could to start owning their own business hoping to improve their quality of life through entrepreneurship. “I like to share my rizq with single mothers, any woman alike in this country who is in need of job. In fact, my employees are mostly single mothers. Some of them started as tailors eventually grew to be Sales Manager, and that is exactly what I want to provide them, a job to improve their life and make them a better woman with impressive entrepreneurship skills,” she added.
