The Fire & Hide billfold wallet combines hand-woven rescued leather and decommissioned fire hose and is lined with reclaimed parachute silk. This wallet was our first Fire & Hide piece, we made a few a couple of years ago and have been putting them to the test ever since. Elvis has been loving the first sample, red leather on red hose, for over 2 years.
If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose inside the wallet on the bottom left. 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.
