Brand Focus: Kanuk

In 1970, as the rest of the world embraced the seismic impact of hippies, rock and roll and space travel, in a small pocket of Canada’s eastern province an outerwear brand was born. Kanuk began with local inspirations and humble ambitions, but now, over thirty years later as the brand arrives here at Tessuti, it is a label with an emerging international reputation and an innovative approach to performance. So, what do you need to know about Kanuk?

Plummeting temperatures, blistering winds and a damp inclination make the area perfect for developing hard wearing jackets. However, their base in the metropolitan Montreal also provides a home that offers an insight into the requirements of the city scaling outerwear enthusiast. They’re a brand which can do it all.
