Fire Hose Purse

Elvis & Kresse


Crafted from decommissioned fire-hoses, lined with a reclaimed military-grade parachute silk lining, this Elvis & Kresse Purse is a triumph of sustainable luxury – one that is ethical, transparent, generous and kind.

50% of profits go to The Firefighters Charity, and this heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.

Practical as well as stylish, it has 12 credit card slots, a zipped coin compartment, a section for notes and 2 additional sections for receipts.


As Seen At On Me

The Fire-Hose Collection

We fell in love with London’s decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. We took this lifesaving material home determined to breathe new life into it and save it from its otherwise inevitable end in landfill, and vowed to donate 50% of our profits to charity.

For over a decade we have been rescuing all of London’s retired fire-hose by lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits from the Fire-hose Collection to The Fire Fighters Charity. This heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.

Our Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they represents a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.
