Description

The Elvis & Kresse Tote Bag is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose and lined with reclaimed parachute silk. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose turns a classic shape into an eco original. A perfect day bag due to its size and robustness, the tote will keep you dry through a spot of rain and keep its contents dry even in a rainstorm. You don’t need to worry about setting it down on the ground, it will wipe clean with just a cloth and some furniture polish. This over-the-shoulder bag is big enough for a 13" laptop and has 3 internal pockets. Practical, individual, beautiful, timeless.

Our classic Tote Bag is available in red hose, yellow hose or black printing blanket.

50% of profits go to The Fire Fighters Charity

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.
