Fire Hose Overnight BagElvis & Kresse
Crafted from decommissioned fire-hoses, with a reclaimed military-grade parachute silk lining, this Elvis & Kresse Overnight bag is a triumph of sustainable luxury – one that is ethical, transparent, generous and kind. 50% of profits go to The Firefighters Charity.
Also available in yellow, on request.
Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose is perfectly robust for an overnight bag. The wide mouth opening means you can get all your belongings in and out with ease.
WHAT CAN YOU FIT IN THERE?
Well both Kresse and Elvis use it as an overnight bag: Wash kit, change of clothes, pair of running trainers, a book, keys, wallet, iPhone etc.
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.
