When we started rescuing hoses back in 2005 we found that the material we fell in love, nitrile rubber, with was also naturally vegan, and that by not using animal derived glues or lining materials we could offer a completely vegan collection while also staying true to our mission - rescuing materials and donating 50% of profits to charity. All of this is as true today as it was in the beginning.
Not only is our fire-hose collection vegan but so is everything heroing reclaimed printing blankets. The off-set printing industry uses a printing blanket to transfer ink from the roller onto the paper. If the blanket is damaged or wears out it can no longer be trusted to dot your i's or cross your t's . We rescue these blankets, clean them up, re-engineer them and create a second life for a vintage material.
