When it comes to Hari Raya, the ﬁrst thing came to my mind is Jakel for my Baju Raya needs. Not even Baju Raya even I get my engagement outﬁt from Jakel. Jakel also well known for their curtain and “kain ela”. Jakel have everything I could say. Even some of my friend who sell their own Baju Raya brand took the “kain ela” from Jakel.
The story begin in 1983 when the late Mohamed Jakel Bin Ahmad started his small retail business in Muar, Johor. The company is carrying JAKEL TRADING as a trademark to its textile business to win over customers. Started with a minimum capital investment of RM30,000, Mohamed Jakel later has expended the business to Segamat, where the empire started to break people eyes that Jakel is a dominant player in its category.
In 1992, to the additional capital investment of RM500,000, JAKEL TRADING expand its operations by venturing into semi-wholesaler as well as supplying textiles to the government agencies and private sectors. JAKEL TRADING continues to be a highly developed and respected textile company between 1992 and 1997.
On the day of their Oh!! Meriahnya Raya launch, they do give out 300 “baju melayu” for free for the first 200 people and there’s 30% – 80% discount for every buyer.
Another reason why Jakel has still maintained their reputation as number 1 for clothing line supplier because they keep improving their quality and add on more colors. This year, more than 200 new colors have been added to the store. Now, you can even get matching color for the whole family because Upin and Ipin collection do have matching color of the adult.
This year, each of the ambassador represent their own design. For example Aaron Aziz still maintain their original design where it’s suitable for everyone and Nabil Ahmad comes with a little bit twist. His design suitable for thin people. For Dato’ AC, Awal Ashaari, Jep Sepahtu, etc, they do have their own attraction too.
Same like last year (HERE!
), this year Jakel still choose Aaron Aziz, Nabil Ahmad, Upin Ipn as their ambassador. Not to mention additional ambassador such as Awal Ashaari, Scha Alyahya, Lara Alana, Jep Sepahtu and Dato’ AC Mizal. The reason why they pick them because of their followers.
My favourite couple as usual, Awal Ashaari & Scha Alyahya. Unfortunately, their daughter, Lara Alana couldn’t make it on that day.
