Water is life backprint Hoodie

Sale price$69.99 CAD

"Nibi Bimaadiziwin" – in Ojibwe, this profound phrase translates to "Water is Life." This design, created by Emjee, emphasizes the sacredness of water and the imperative to protect it at all costs. It features a Mikinaak (turtle) at its center, symbolizing longevity and perseverance, surrounded by intricate Ojibwe floral patterns, representing the beauty and intricacy of life sustained by water. This artistic expression serves as a reminder of the vital role water plays in our existence and the responsibility we have to safeguard it.

Sizing Chart

Almost all of our product options are unisex fit. (Unless otherwise specified on that specific product page, description and/or title)

Measurements taken in inches. Customers between sizes, should size down for a slimmer fit or size up for a relaxed fit. If in doubt, just go a size larger, better to fit a bit loose, than to not fit at all.


• Our garments run TRUE TO SIZE ('American' standard lettered sizes; S-M-L, etc.) WE DO NOT SOURCE CHEAP GARMENTS FROM CHINA, We source our blank garments from trusted manufacturers within Turtle Island ('The America's'); Canada, The USA, Mexico, and Honduras.


Step 1: Measure these area's (reference below on fig.1)

Chest/Bust: Measure circumference around the widest part of chest/bust.

Waist: Measure circumference of natural waist where pants sit (think regular rise pants).

Hips: Stand straight and measure around the largest circumference at hips.
Step 2: After you measure, take the largest number, then half it.
Here is an example; Customer measures a 42' inch chest, 42' divided by 2 = 21' ; So 21' is your rounded measurement, compare this number (21') to the width column of the measurements listed below. Aim for the size that is similar to (snug fit) or greater than (natural / loose fit) your rounded measurement. In this example; a t-shirt that is L-XL would suit our 21' rounded measurement.

    I gave 2 hoodies as Christmas gifts, one each to my daughters’ partners and they were very pleased. Very soft and comfortable and they liked the bright graphic on the back.

    Ally Category

    I was looking to buy my nephew a present for his birthday, knowing that he prefers to support BIPOC and ethically made clothing. Much to my delight I discovered Resist Clothing Co. and more importantly the Ally category. Making it easier for me to not only support an indigenous clothing company, but also knowing that I was appreciating, not appropriating! OH and he absolutely loves it! I look the best aunt ever... thanks to you!
