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.

Printing Blanket Range

We also offer a Printing Blanket version of our classic pieces. They are made from reclaimed printing blankets, rescued from the printing industry, and combined with our signature decommissioned fire-hose. The re-engineered black printing blanket creates a visually stunning textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch. This version maintains all the design features of the full fire-hose versions.

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.


My wife was delighted with the yellow fire-hose notebook cover. She loves your brand and the link to fire service charities, mainly because her late father was firefighter in Greater Manchester for many years.


I received the fire hose notebook and wash bag today - thank you.

I have to say they are genuinely the most beautiful and impeccably crafted gifts I’ve ever gotten anybody. What you’ve done here is so unique and brilliant.

Thank you also for the perfect laser etching. It looks so good and I’m so pleased you got it all on one line.

I’ve never written feedback or a review for anything in my life, but I just had to say thank you. I’m not sure if you know what an incredible thing you’re doing here.
