About this project

 Waiting for the bus in the cold. Keep your hands warm!

Tahka - Leather Edition!

Tahka - Black Edition!

 Canadian Style

Did you know that the your smartphone needs temperatures between 0° to 35° C (32 to95° F) work properly? You would be surprised at just how many people have trouble with their phones every winter because of low temperatures. We thought that the idea of keeping your phone in your pocket the whole day seemed illogical, and with that concept in mind we set out on a mission to keep the phones, and their users warm.

The Tahka has been developing for many months now. As Canadians we face harsh winters and cold temperatures for most of the year. The arctic weather tends to get into every nook and cranny, leaving even the best gloves useless when using a phone. The Tahka is made out of high-quality materials that will keep both your hands and your device enveloped in warmth. It will protect you from all weather surprises i.e. wind, rain, snow, hail, and even blizzards! 

The project is proudly Canadian, the materials, manufacture, and design are all Toronto based. Stay warm without giving up your phone, Canadian style.

Risks and challenges

We have been working on the TAHKA development for more than a year, we’ve done our best to identify potential problems. We have made improvements in shape, materials, size and color choices . Now we feel confident the TAHKA is ready for a wider audience.

The biggest challenge is getting our supply chain going. Our manufacturing is ready to start production will begin immediately after project closes. We promise to keep you updated as the project develops.
