Makers Saturday in March



For the first time ever you will have a choice of 10 different pieces to custom design! 

If you have ever wanted to design and learn how to make your own luxury accessory then this is an event you don't want to miss. Elvis & Kresse would love to welcome you to their workshop on the last Saturday of March. Tonge Mill is an incredible piece of history, originally built in 1837 and restored by Elvis & Kresse in 2013. 

The Elvis & Kresse Fire & Hide Collection combines stunning rescued leather with our signature decommissioned fire-hose. We rescue leather off-cuts from the production of Burberry leather goods and have a 5-year partnership with the Burberry Foundation with the aim of changing the future of leather waste. We have designed a lego-like system which allows us to transform small, seemingly unusable leather pieces into whole new hides. 

On March 30th we will have a wide selection of leather colours and textures for you to choose from. You will learn how to design and assemble your very own piece. Whatever colour or pattern you choose, it will be entirely your own. The crafts team at Elvis & Kresse will then finish your piece and send it out to you in our wonderful reclaimed packaging. If you would like to combine your workshop with an overnight stay, please do let us know. We will happily help you to find local accommodation.

This amazing experience would make an incredible gift too. It includes a light lunch, a chance to meet Elvis & Kresse and a genuine behind the scenes experience with sustainable luxury pioneers. 

50% of the profits from our rescued leather collection are donated to renewable energy projects.
