Edmonton River

We design limited edition T-shirts that celebrate our ancient river valley,

which hosts over 100 festivals in the winter, spring, summer and autumn

and is a homeland for the Cree, Blackfoot, Nakota Sioux, Tsuut’ina, Dene, Saulteaux and Métis.

Join us at the 3rd Annual Orange Shirt Day Run/Walk on Sept 30. (book soon, this is selling out)

Orange Shirt Day Edmonton

Each Face of Edmonton image is selected by advisors and the public

to reflect our region's identity while recogizing its heritage, diversity and aspirations,

and is then silk screened by hand onto 100% cotten garments in Edmonton.

About us

We're a family of researchers, teachers and students that live in Edmonton.

We love this city and its river valley, where you'll find us hiking, biking or canoeing most days.

We've put what we like about this city into our designs.

The "e" traces the North Saskatchewan River and the Anthony Henday highway that surrounds our city.

When superimposed on our city it represents the world's largest "e".

The "e" design doubles as a map that can include coloured dots to guide people to where places are.

This is intended to help residents, immigrants and visitors find Edmonton's attractions and festivals.

Our images are custom designed and screen printed by hand in Edmonton onto soft breathable 100% cotton T-shirts.

Wear one of our limited edition prints and tell your story.

Edmonton River respectfully acknowledges the traditional land where Edmonton is located,

which is known as amiskwacîwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ.

This is the Territory of the Treaty 6 First Nations,

the homeland of the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 4,  

and the ancestral territory of the Cree, Blackfoot, Nakota Sioux, Tsuut’ina, Dene, Saulteaux and Métis.

We thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose ancestors lived in this valley for millennia.

Their histories, languages and cultures continue to enliven our communities.

We were featured by Make Something Edmonton and Edmonton Made.

We are based in pihêsiwin ᐱᐦᐁᓯᐏᐣ and support the Homeward Trust, Orange Shirt Day, Cure Cancer and DiscoveryLab.

Contact us if you'd like to meet up to discuss the possibilities.
