The Elvis & Kresse Fire & Hide Duffel bag is made from rescued leather and decommissioned fire hose and is lined with reclaimed auction banners. Each banner is totally unique so no two interiors are the same. The fire-hose is the perfect partner to the hand-woven leather, deployed in all vital areas: the base, the handles and the strap. Our Duffel bag is a great size for a trip away and has plenty of pockets to keep your essentials organised. Comfortable, practical and full of history even before you add your own experiences.
The Fire & Hide Collection
Our commitment to rescuing British fire hoses has not changed, the trim, handles and internal detailing of the Fire & Hide range are all made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose. But fire hose was just the beginning of our story.
Each year, 800,000 tonnes of beautiful leather ends up on the cutting room floor. Our leather partners, the best of British luxury, cherish their hides and the waste they produce is in small seemingly unusable pieces. In order to rescue these fragments we developed a modular approach. We created three shapes that interlock to create whole new hides. Each shape is individually cut before we lovingly hand weave them together, piece by piece, creating a strong, beautiful and tactile new material. Fire & Hide is more than a collection, it represents a whole new kind of luxury.
