The Elvis & Kresse Notebook is bound in our signature decommissioned fire-hose, previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years. Inlayed with fire fighting history, it comes in hard-back with 98 leaves of unbleached, lined or unlined recycled cream paper, which can be replaced at any time with either our Elvis & Kresse refills or your preferred A5 refill. The front cover can be personalised making this a wonderful gift for a loved one or as something special just for you...
Available in red and rarer yellow fire-hose or the black Print Room version.
If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose or paper. We recommend not more than 20 characters per line. 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, and vowed to donate 50% of our profits to charity.
For over a decade 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.
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.
