The Toque of Hearts.
This piece, currently available at the Lineham House Galleries’ booth at the Scottie’s Tournament of Hearts in Okotoks, Alberta , is seasonally inspired. The toque is a nod to both the theme of the curling competition and the season surrounding Valentines Day.
This is a unique take on a fair isle style hat. A border formed of hearts is complimented by a detailed pattern of white and grey. The gathered crown of this “zero waste” toque, makes for a shape flattering for a variety of different head shapes. This piece is made of naturally dyed Canadian wool, and designed and crafted by hand in Canada. As it is the first toque we have created with a heart border motif, it is currently a “one-of-a-kind” item.
We find creating items specialized to events or themes to be very interesting projects. As we are factory free, and create our own designs, we are able to create small quantity commission pieces. We welcome retailers and event planners to contact us to discuss custom created items that are handcrafted here in Canada. Our toques and Coffee Sweaters are our two products best suited for customized pieces.
