Elvis & Kresse create stunning life-style accessories by re-engineering seemingly useless wastes. The innovative and pioneering Fire-Hose range is made exclusively from genuine de-commissioned British fire brigade hoses which, after a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives, were otherwise destined for landfill.
50% of profits are donated to charity.
Elvis & Kresse are constantly thinking about waste. The instant we met the London Fire Brigade we fell in love with their old hose. Although we started in London, Elvis & Kresse now collect hose across the UK and in order to thank Britain’s Brigades, 50% of our profits go back to the Fire Fighters Charity. We scrub away all the soot, grease, and everything else that builds up after 25 years of active duty, and in the process reveal a truly remarkable, truly green textile.
All of Elvis & Kresse's products have the environment at their core - industrial waste is the cornerstone of our brand... These are some of the materials we reclaim
