The Elvis & Kresse candlestick holders are made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose couplings. These are exclusively available from the Elvis & Kresse online store, there really aren't many of these around. The couplings from the hoses are made from robust aluminium and as such last and last... but every now and then we get hold of some. The set comprises 2 candlestick holders (male and female coupling), 2 fire-hose coasters to rest the holders on and 2 candles. This set of 2 unique pieces are lovingly restored by Elvis.
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.
*Please note our candlestick holders are made to order and so we may not be able to dispatch same day, although we will always do our best.
