WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
Each of Tribute Collective’s pieces features original, hand-drawn and historically accurate designs commended by Veterans, RSLs and members of the Australian Army.
As a proud Australian Made® accredited and family-owned brand, we create, design, manufacture and process our polos using Australian suppliers and local workforce.
We are an authorised Australian Partner of Defence on an unrelenting mission to lead Australia’s wearable memorial activity with integrity, accuracy and respect, while being kind to the planet. We craft respectful apparel that pays tribute to those who gave their today for our tomorrow.
WHO ARE WE?
We are a nimble, passionate team who call the Gold Coast, Queensland home. Tribute Collective was born out of respect for the extraordinary service of Australian and New Zealand military men and women.
For Australians who wish to remember, we offer original, sustainable and historically accurate memorial apparel that is handcrafted on home turf and carefully designed using official archival records.
Our Gold Coast-based in-house designs team personally hand-draws every design with high-quality, precise details.
To reveal untold histories. To offer opportunities to pay tribute.
And to honour those who have served or continue to serve our country.
ETHICS AND AUTHENTICITY
Tribute Collective is the proud recipient of permission from the Australian Army that allows us to display and reproduce protected army emblems, including the 3rd pattern Rising Sun badge and the Royal Australian Army Nursing Corps emblem.
We are officially Australian Made® accredited and an authorised Australian Partner of Defence. We are a keen champion of ethical practice in the industry and fight unsolicited uses of copyrighted material and designs.
Tribute Collective’s pieces are produced in small quantities and shipped with zero plastic. Packages include 100% recyclable materials and plant-based, home compostable mailers. We ship parcels carbon-neutral at no extra cost to you.
Our polos are manufactured using sustainable practices. Prints feature high quality, carcinogen-free pigment inks and recycled materials. Our t-shirts are made ethically using Australian-grown cotton yarn, decorated with water-based inks.
Since 2014, Tribute Collective's parent company Life Apparel has contributed over $125,000 in monetary and non-monetary donations to selected Australian charities, including Legacy Australia, Beyond Blue, The Fred Hollows Foundation, Foodbank, Greening Australia, The Indigenous Literacy Foundation, and more.
We have sponsored events (such as RSL fundraisers), and helped individuals whilst working closely with people who share similar visions within the Indigenous community and the wider Australian society.
We consider this effort to be an inseparable part of who we are and what we represent.
