The Fire & Hide Notebook cover is bound in our hand-woven rescued leather and our signature decommissioned fire-hose, previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years. Inlayed with heroic fire fighting history, it comes in hard-back with 98 leaves of recycled unbleached cream paper which can be replaced at any time with either Elvis & Kresse refills or your preferred A5 refill pad. The inside of our Notebook cover can be personalised making this a wonderful gift for a loved one or as something special just for you...
Available in various colours of rescued Burberry leather combined with red or rarer yellow fire-hose.
If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose, or paper if requested. We recommend not more than 20 characters per line. The font used is Times New Roman.
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.
