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: knees-length and mid-calf-length. 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 the bike, on the way to the gym, yoga or anywhere, under your coat or worn with a jacket on a cold car seat! It will make the cold days much easier to enjoy. It also turns into a shawl once inside.
What does TUKUAN mean?
Tukuan is an interpretation of an Innu word meaning: it's winter-cold.
The Innu, or Ilnus, or Naskapi or Montagnais, are an Aboriginal people from the eastern part of the Quebec-Labrador Peninsula, more specifically from the North Shore and Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean regions of Quebec and the Labrador region of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Staying warm in a wintery country.
The idea of Tukuan skirt was created by a mother who lives in a wintery country. Long hours walking a lot and playing outdoors with her children made her uncomfortable in the cold. Despite even long padded coats, her lower back and thighs always ended up frozen. To get out of this discomfort, she would wrap a scarf around her waist. In 2015, she talked to her fashion designer friend about the idea of a warm wrap-style garment. Her friend thought it was a great idea. Félicité's talent as a designer allowed Tukuan overskirt to take shape as a unique and stylish garment.
