Fire Hose Weekend Bag

Elvis & Kresse


Crafted from decommissioned fire-hoses with rescued auction banner lining, this Elvis & Kresse Weekend 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.


As Seen At On Me

Each banner is totally unique so no two interiors are the same.

Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hard-wearing hose is perfectly suited for your travels. The wide mouth opening of our weekend bag makes packing, unpacking and searching very easy and the generous sizing means you can take everything you need for a weekend away. The bag has an easy access external pocket, an internal zip pocket and 3 further internal poacher-style pockets

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.
