To be honest, we were a little dismayed by the release of the 'million dollar bag'.
There is a lot going on in the world, and if we are going to have a price that is clearly designed to generate headlines then why not generate headlines for the right reasons?
This is our response. We are upping the ante. We are releasing, for a limited time, a one-of-a-kind Million Pound bag. But this bag is completely different. It isn't about having a million to spend on a bag, it is about choosing to donate a million pounds. It is about celebrating the work of our long-standing charity partners, The Firefighters Charity and Barefoot College International. Money can't buy this bag, but generosity can.
What else makes this bag unique? It is made entirely from rescued materials and it is one-of-a-kind not because we have decided to make only one, but because it is impossible to make two. When you rescue materials you have no control over what comes in, and the gold stripe across the top of this bag is constructed from a gold leather that is so rare, there was only enough to make one piece. Elvis & Kresse will not be profiting from this bag. All of the proceeds will go to our charitable partners, The Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College International. This bag will support firefighters, and help train women who have not had access to education to be solar engineers. Luxury needs to be about more than bling.
Please do get in touch if you would like to donate a million pounds - your funds will go directly to our two charity partners, The Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College International (both are UK registered charities). There will be no VAT, there will be no profit to Elvis & Kresse.
