Sharp and distinguished

The Elvis & Kresse fire-hose and leather Continental Briefcase is a beautifully crafted business bag. Our highly skilled team handcraft this from a combination of our signature decommissioned fire-hose and hand-woven rescued Burberry leather off-cuts, with a reclaimed military-grade parachute silk lining. It offers ample space for all your day-to-day work paraphernalia, with a full-width external pocket and internal zip pocket and 2 additional poacher-style pockets.

Available in multiple different leather colours and two different fire-hose trims. The case comes with a fully adjustable and detachable shoulder strap.

If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose. We recommend not more than 20 characters. 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.

50% of profits donated

Since 2005 we have been rescuing seemingly useless materials and lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits to charities related to those raw materials. 50% of the profits from the Fire & Hide Collection are donated to Barefoot College International and The Fire Fighters Charity.


I have got the attaché for my husband (he is a firefighter) 2 years ago as his birthday gift. He loves your bags and your mission and always update me the new products you have. He said he will pass the bag to our sons in the future, I think that will be quite meaningful. Will keep supporting you guys and thanks for helping save the world. ❤️❤️


I wanted to get in touch to provide you some positive feedback about my customer experience.

I reside in Australia with my English expat husband who is a huge fan of your products. He has two phone cases, a wallet, a wash bag, and his favourite, an attaché bag.

You went above and beyond, answering all my little questions, letting me know all the steps along the way, managing the time difference between us, helping me to stop my husband spoiling the surprise, and you have made me feel like my order was just as important as your VIP’s.
