Elvis & Kresse

Circular solution to a textile waste problem.

Elvis & Kresse was established in 2005 to save London's decommissioned fire-hose, ones that had become too damaged to repair and were going to landfill. Elvis & Kresse fell in love with these brave retired fire-hoses and mounted a rescue. Today, Elvis & Kresse's highly skilled craftspeople make beautifully designed bags and homeware from 15 different reclaimed materials. 50% of profits from the Fire-hose Collection go to The Fire Fighters Charity and 50% of profits from the Fire & Hide Collection go to Barefoot College International.
