More than the sum of its parts

The Elvis & Kresse Print Room Wallet is handmade by combining vintage printing blankets and genuine decommissioned fire-hose. The printing blankets are used in the offset print industry and are scrapped as soon as they develop any imperfections. After we re-engineer the material it has a beautiful and tactile matt black finish to it. The fire-hose, previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years fighting fires around the UK, softens with use but doesn't lose its strength. The wallet is lined with reclaimed military grade parachute silk.

Available in red hose with black printing blanket body with or without a coin pocket.

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.

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.


Have received the Wallet and it is lovely. I am sure my ex fireman will be very pleased on Christmas Day. Quality lovely and love the packaging too. Thank you so much for the help on the phone too. Also can't believe how quickly the wallet arrived. Have a lovely Christmas.

I’m really excited to receive the wallet, it will be a much cherished gift to my other half who served 26 years as a chief fire fighter.
