Description

Keep Safe

The Fire & Hide Cosmetics Case combines hand-woven rescued leather and decommissioned fire hose and is lined with reclaimed parachute silk. The intricate leather is handwoven and stitched creating a stunning case that is ideal for carrying all of your vital cosmetics, toiletries or makeup. Its fire-hose base means the case is water resistant where it needs to be and the internal zip pocket keeps your jewellery or smaller items securely stored away. Perfect for an elegant weekend away.

We are excited to be able to offer our Cosmetics Case in so many various finite leather colours now. The leather we rescue comes to us in very limited quantities, which means we can only ever craft a few pieces of any colour. The variations we have available will continuously change according to what leather off-cuts we are able to rescue.

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

Hi, I have bought a large cosmetics bag for a pal of mine, a key ring and a couple of purses... the products are brilliant and I absolutely love the whole recycle thing. I’m also a huge Elvis Presley fan so your name is perfect.
I will undoubtedly be purchasing more in the future thank you for such a great idea and company.

Lorna

Thank you very much for the cosmetic bag and the purse this year as the bag last year it went down a storm and my wife actually said she was getting a bag to put in the cosmetics bag as it was far too nice for all her bits and bobs to go into!

Once again you have helped me out with another Christmas gift that knocked her socks off and she loved the personal touches with the engraving.

Keep up the great work

Phil
