Description

It's not about having a Million it's about giving a Million!

To be honest, we were a little dismayed by the release of the 'million dollar bag'. 

There is a lot going on in the world, and if we are going to have a price that is clearly designed to generate headlines then why not generate headlines for the right reasons?

This is our response. We are upping the ante. We are releasing, for a limited time, a one-of-a-kind Million Pound bag. But this bag is completely different. It isn't about having a million to spend on a bag, it is about choosing to donate a million pounds. It is about celebrating the work of our long-standing charity partners, The Firefighters Charity and Barefoot College International. Money can't buy this bag, but generosity can.

What else makes this bag unique? It is made entirely from rescued materials and it is one-of-a-kind not because we have decided to make only one, but because it is impossible to make two. When you rescue materials you have no control over what comes in, and the gold stripe across the top of this bag is constructed from a gold leather that is so rare, there was only enough to make one piece. Elvis & Kresse will not be profiting from this bag. All of the proceeds will go to our charitable partners, The Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College International. This bag will support firefighters, and help train women who have not had access to education to be solar engineers. Luxury needs to be about more than bling.

Our Weekend Bag is a great size for a trip away and has plenty of pockets to keep your essentials organised. Comfortable, practical and full of history even before you add your own experiences.

The Fire & Hide Weekend Bag is designed around our iconic full fire-hose variation, which is a part of the Victoria and Albert Museum's permanent collection.

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

I am proud of all our bags - but this idea really represents everything we are about. This bag has the biggest heart, treads very lightly on the planet, and actually deserves the headlines...

Kresse

This should be called the "best bag in the world"... no other bag has the ability to do so much good, it is certainly a statement piece!
