Description

Mood lighting

The Elvis & Kresse Cast Aluminium Candlestick Holders are made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose couplings. These extremely rare pieces are exclusively available from Elvis & Kresse. The couplings from the fire-hoses are robust, they are made to last through hose after hose after hose... but every now and then, when they are too damaged for reuse, they come to us.

The 35mm and 50mm diameter candlestick sets comprise of 2 candlestick holders and the single 75mm holder comprises a single female coupling. The set is completed with fire-hose Coasters to rest the holders on and a set of candles. 

Previously used to fight fires in the UK these unique couplings are lovingly hand restored by our team in our workshop in Kent. There really aren't many of these around, which makes them a wonderful statement piece for your home or as memorable gifts.

THE FIRE-HOSE COLLECTION

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.

Testimonials

Just to let you know the candle holders have arrived and they are amazing. Husband is super pleased Witt them, a great keepsake to mark the end of an incredible career.

Have a fab day and weekend.

So far I’ve purchased the candle couplings and weekend bag for a firefighter and now the wash bag will (hopefully) be joining the collection. Really excellent items and so well received! I want them all! Unique and appropriate for someone who is dedicated to their job too! I am waiting to get one of the bags myself though but missed the boat with the green/red and white/red Gladstone’s due to being unable to make a decision on colour!! 🙄 Wishing you all warmest wishes and hope you have a great Christmas.
