How your purchase helps us give back to communities in need

Our philosophy at Amici Collective is based on friendship. Drawing on my Italian heritage - 'amici' means 'friend' in Italian - Amici Collective celebrates connection through travel experiences. Those moments that create special memories with family and friends, making new friends along the way, and giving back to the local communities who welcome us.

My travel experiences have shaped my belief that travel is a privilege, one that is out of reach for many people. Amici Collective is committed to showing gratitude for this privilege, by giving back to communities in need with every purchase.

Across the world, millions of people are living without access to safe drinking water and sanitation. These issues are close to my heart after witnessing the health impacts, social problems and economic disadvantages facing communities without access to these basic needs.

Amici Collective is a proud supporter of WaterAid, an international not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere, within a generation.

With every purchase you make, we will donate $1 to WaterAid Australia. $1 per purchase may seem insignificant against the scale of the challenge, but in a world where 30% of people live on just $1 a day, every dollar counts.

As an Australian made brand, your purchase also supports the Australian leather craftsman and small businesses involved in making Amici Collective products.
