We create unique & versatile accessories with the Canadian weather in mind.

The one-size-fits-all wrap-around overskirt that reflects Canada's distinctive lifestyle, inspired by the idea of a Northern, multi-generational, Canadian-designed sarong that respects nature.

TUKUAN believes that everyone who lives in a northern country should have a TUKUAN to make the most of the cold seasons, that TUKUAN is the ideal gift for a loved one.

What does TUKUAN mean?

TUKUAN is an invented word in the spirit of celebrating the heritage of our Canadian land. This is the new word that represents the Canadian hygge. 

The origin: Keeping warm in style in a wintery country

The initial idea of the TUKUAN the versatile overskirt was conceived by a mother, Lisa, who lives in a wintry country.

Long hours of walking and playing outdoors with her children made her uncomfortable in the cold. Despite wearing long padded coats, her lower back and thighs always ended up frozen. To help relieve some of her discomfort, she would wrap a scarf around her waist.

In 2015, she decided to talk to her friend, who just happened to be a fashion designer, about the idea of a warm wrap-style garment. Her friend thought it was a great idea.

Félicité's inspiration and talent as a designer launched this unique and stylish garment, the TUKUAN overskirt.
