Description

For the minimalist

The Fire & Hide version of our Faversham wallet combines hand-woven rescued Burberry leather and decommissioned fire-hose and is lined with reclaimed parachute silk. Named after the vibrant and creative Kent town where our workshop is situated, the wallet features 6 credit card slots, a section for notes, 2 additional sections for business cards and a zip pocket for coins.

If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose. We recommend not more than 20 characters. The font used is Times New roman.

This wallet is also available in our fire-hose and printing blanket range.

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.

Testimonials

The wallet is even nicer in real life!!! Love it.
I’m off to the West coast tomorrow so I’ll send in some nice pics (hopefully it won’t be too rainy and we’ll get some sun ) of it on its travels!
