TUKUAN is a wrap overskirt, in a beautiful A-line, made of luxurious materials that keep you warm when the cold weather arrives. It comes in two styles: knee-length and mid-calf. It covers sizes 4-14 and 14-18 thanks to a system of snaps carefully placed along the waist. This overskirt is perfect for spending winter in style, on a bike, on the way to the gym, for yoga or anywhere else, under your coat or worn with a jacket on a cold car seat! It will take the cold edge out of those brisk winter days and nights. So versatile, it also turns into a shawl.
What does TUKUAN mean?
TUKUAN is an invented word. In the spirit of celebrating the heritage of our Canadian land and the native Americans whose presence on this earth dates back to the Paleolithic age.
The origin: staying warm in a wintery country.
The initial idea of the TUKUANn 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.
