Over the last few years Elvis & Kresse have curated a series of events in London with British Standard. We got along so well that we decided to collaborate on strong, simple handles handmade in Kent from our signature decommissioned London fire-hoses. 

British Standard make beautifully simple wooden cupboards that are delivered to your door ready made. The range is underpinned by a commitment to craftsmanship, an obsession with great British design and a belief that creativity in the home should be celebrated. British Standard also provide a free design service that enables customers to identify a layout that is as enduring and practical as the cupboards themselves.

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.

Our Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they 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 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.


We bought a set of red handles to offset some very pink cupboards in our daughter's bedroom. They are gorgeous and really make a unique statement.


I am going to get a pencil case next but today a couple of your cupboard handles arrived and they really brighten up our built in cupboards 😊.
