Reclaiming and repurposing materials is so hot right now. And Elvis & Kresse have some of the hottest luxury lifestyle products on the market – like this wash bag made from a reclaimed fire hose.
Elvis & Kresse was established in 2005 to save London’s decommissioned fire hose, which had become too damaged to repair and were going to landfill.
Today, their highly skilled craftspeople make beautifully designed bags and homeware with 50 per cent of profits from the fire hose range going directly to the The Fire Fighters Charity.
This medium Wash Bag is made from genuine decommissioned fire hose and lined with waste parachute silk.
Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years of fighting fires around the UK, the material used for fire hose in the past makes for a perfect wash bag today.
Strong enough to tackle the toughest conditions first time around, the hose has been re-engineered to protect your essential toiletries – the hose itself is obviously water-resistant – and securing what’s inside.
