The Elvis & Kresse Desk Tidy is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose. These robust and stylish trays are great for keeping all your clutter in one place. Never lose keys again, keep receipts ready and all those important small notes close. As with the rest of our Fire-hose range, 50% of the profits from this unique piece is donated to The Fire Fighters Charity.
If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose inside the Desk Tidy. We recommend not more than 40 characters. The font used is Times New Roman.
We also offer a Limited Edition 'Print Room' Desk Tidy. Made from reclaimed printing blankets combined with our signature decommissioned fire-hose, this version makes a bold statement. The re-engineered printing blanket creates a visually stunning textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch. This iteration maintains all the design features of the full fire-hose version as described above.
We fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. We took this lifesaving material home determined to breathe new life into it and save it from its otherwise inevitable end in landfill, and vowed to donate 50% of our profits to charity.
For over a decade we have been rescuing all of London's retired fire-hose by lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits from the Fire-hose Collection to The Fire Fighters Charity. This heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.
Our Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they represent a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.
