Phone, keys, decommissioned fire-hose wallet? Check! The Elvis & Kresse Billfold Wallet is a staple of our men’s luxury accessories collection. A classic billfold design, with a partition for notes, space for cards and made from genuine rescued fire-hose this is the ultimate sustainable way to carry your cash.
The Elvis & Kresse design ethos is a little different, some would even say unusual. We start with the rescued materials, making sure we waste nothing and divert everything we can from landfill, more than anything else, the materials we reclaim dictate our design. Elvis spent two years developing this ethical Billfold Wallet until we were happy with it. Fire-hose is an amazing, robust, beautiful material and lends itself perfectly to pieces that enjoy everyday use.
Sleek, stylish, resilient and contactless card friendly - this wallet wastes nothing.
The Elvis & Kresse Billfold wallet measures 9.5cm in height, 12cm in width, and 1.5cm in depth (when closed and empty). It is sleek enough to fit in an inside, side or back pocket without creating unnecessary bulk.
The size lends itself perfectly to zero-waste design as the diameter of firehose is 10cm.
The low profile design means this piece won’t break your silhouette or look overly cumbersome in your pockets but there is still plenty of room inside for what you need to carry every day. The fire-hose Billfold Wallet has space for 8 credit or debit cards and 2 additional pockets for business cards as well as a partitioned note section to keep your foreign currency separate.
The fire-hose exterior is tough but malleable and is water resistant and wipe-clean making this the ideal everyday, sustainable wallet.
All our ethical products are hand finished. We are a slow fashion brand through and through. Each piece is produced in a small batch to ensure the highest quality (which in turn, prevents waste). A subtle Elvis & Kresse logo is laser etched onto each piece. Corners and edges are hand painted and the Billfold Wallet is presented in a reclaimed printing blanket pouch - which you can re-use too.
Personalisation is available on our Billfold Wallet - we can laser etch a message, phrase, initials or dates on the inner left panel to make this a wonderful sustainable gift, or memento.
As well as helping us reduce waste (and looking good while doing it), 50% of the profits from our Fire-Hose Collection are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity and 50% of the profits from our Fire & Hide Collection are donated to Barefoot College International.
