Safe in your pocket

The Elvis & Kresse Billfold Wallet with coin pocket is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose softens with use but never loses its strength. The wallet is lined with reclaimed military-grade parachute silk. It is naturally water resistant, extremely durable, and we have found it to be quite the conversation starter.

Available in red or rarer yellow hose.

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.

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.


Huge fan of your wares and own a good few of your items and wanted to spread the E&K message and purchase some wallets for the groomsmen at my wedding. They were all blown away!


The wallet I bought for my husband for Christmas? He just loves it. Having a fireman in our family (our son) he was very impressed by how the fire hose had been used and the lovely products that you produce. Keep up the good work
