As Seen At On Me

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.


It’s a large washbag so you can fit pretty much anything you like but Elvis takes: Tooth brush, toothpaste, razor, shaving brush and cream, soap, shampoo, hairbrush and nail clippers and Kresse manages to cram it a little fuller with some conditioner and moisturizer and obviously loses the shaving kit, but you get the picture!


Kresse fell in love with London’s decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. They 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  profits to charity.

For over a decade they 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.

Elvis & Kresse’s 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.
