Description

The Fire & Hide Backpack has two adjustable straps made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose, a body made from rescued Burberry leather anda reclaimed lining.It has a quick access external zip pocket, and two internal pockets - one perfect for a small laptop or important documents with a stud closure and the other for your day-to-day essentials with a zip. The backpack will comfortably carry a 13" laptop, iPad, book, travel wallet, a change of clothes and your everyday essentials. It has a grab handle at the top so you can carry this at your side. Our signature fire-hose completes the backpack with a durable water resistant and wipe-clean base.

It is available in various finite leather colours. The leather we rescue comes to us in very limited quantities, which means we can only ever craft a few pieces of any colour. The variations we have available will always change according to what leather off-cuts we are able to rescue. Every option includes handles and trim in genuine decommissioned fire-hose, which was previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK.

Elvis & Kresse

Kent, UK

Elvis & Kresse was established in 2005 to save London's decommissioned fire-hose, hoses that had become too damaged to repair and were going to landfill. We fell in love with these brave old hoses and mounted a rescue.

Today, Elvis & Kresse's highly skilled craftspeople make beautifully designed accessories (bags, belts and wallets) and homeware from 15 different reclaimed materials. We now have several charitable partnerships and collaborations across industries. 50% of profits from the fire hose range go to The Fire Fighters Charity. 50% of the profits from our rescued leather pieces are donated to Barefoot College International. In 2021 Elvis & Kresse also took on a farm in order to establish a regenerative agriculture project, generate their own renewables and implement a host of environmental initiatives.

Sustainable luxury since 2005: rescue, transform, donate.
