The Print Room Belt is a combination of our signature rescued fire-hose with reclaimed printing blanket. It has our solid West End buckle in an Antique Brass or Silver finish with matching eyelets and bold contrasting stitching. The printing blankets are used in the print industry and are scrapped as soon as they develop any imperfections, after we have re-engineered them they have a sleek matt black finish. The lustrous red fire hose was previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years fighting fires around the UK.
All our belts are measured from the fold that holds the buckle to the third hole.
XS - 31” S - 33” M - 35” L - 37” XL - 39” XXL - 41”
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.
