Description

Look after me and I will look after you

Our Fire & Hide Belt takes its strength from a solid decommissioned fire-hose foundation and its sophistication from the delicately handwoven and edge stitched rescued leather exterior. It is a great unisex belt, made with a classic West End buckle, and is 4cm wide. The unique design allows the belt to be worn during more sophisticated formal events and casual enough to embellish everyday wear.



The leather we rescue from Burberry comes to us in very limited quantities, which means we can only ever craft a few pieces of any colour. The belt is available in the above colour combinations, but always with either yellow or red fire-hose on the inside. Different colour combinations will have either a silver or antique brass buckle and matching eyelets. We recommend putting these on with care, to protect the leather weave and ensure the longevity of your belt.

All our belts are measured from the fold that holds the buckle to the third hole.
West End Belt Sizing Graphic
Sizes are:
XS - 31” S - 33” M - 35” L - 37” XL - 39” XXL - 41”

The best way to ensure you receive the correct size is to measure an existing belt from the fold to the hole that you most use, then pick the corresponding size from the table above. Other sizes may be available by request.

THE FIRE & HIDE COLLECTION

In 2005 we fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose. Determined to save it from landfill we took this lifesaving material home, gave it a second chance, and vowed to donate 50% of the profits to the Fire Fighters Charity. But fire-hose was just the beginning.

Every year, 800,000 tonnes of leather ends up on the cutting room floor. Our leather partners cherish their hides, but no matter how carefully they cut their patterns, there will always be small seemingly unusable offcuts. To rescue this leather we developed a unique modular approach. We hand weave these fragments into whole new hides then lovingly recraft them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Our commitment to rescuing British fire-hoses remains the same, the trim, handles and internal detailing of the Fire & Hide range are all made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose. And we continue to donate 50% of profits to charity.

Our Fire & Hide Collection represents a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.

50% of profits donated

Since 2005 we have been rescuing seemingly useless materials and lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits to charities related to those raw materials. 50% of the profits from the Fire & Hide Collection are donated to Barefoot College International and The Fire Fighters Charity.
