Our Mission

Toques From The Heart is a social enterprise dedicated to giving a toque to every Canadian experiencing homelessness.

We do this by collecting knit hockey socks and repurposing them into toques.

 

Handmade in Canada

Straight from the heart, all of our toques are Canadian handmade and made out of hockey socks. We are passionate about selling premium quality toques, engaging in a sustainable repurposing practice, and providing Canada’s hockey community with a special opportunity to help the homeless.

500 Toques Given

35,000 Canadians experience homelessness on any given night. We strive to provide all of them with warm and durable toques during the cold winter months. Our toques are hand delivered directly to the homeless by our partnered non-profit organizations.

1200 Hockey Socks Collected

Our toques that we give are made by repurposing knit hockey socks that we collect. This sustainable repurposing practice is our unique way of making more toques, while providing Canada’s hockey community with a special opportunity to help the homeless.

Toques we Sell

Our toques that we sell are made out of brand new, soft knit hockey sock material, which is a special (cotton x polyester) mix that makes our toques soft and durable. We also double-layer our toques for added warmth and comfort. You wouldn't know our toques were made out of hockey sock material unless we told you!

Toques we Give

The toques that we give are made out of new and used, knit hockey socks, which we collect and fully repurposed into toques. We are able to turn one large hockey sock into two toques. All hockey socks are washed, disinfected, and patched if there are small rips or tears.
