Description

Ready for every mini adventure

The Elvis & Kresse Medium Wash Bag, just like its bigger brother, is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose and lined with waste parachute silk. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, fire-hose makes a perfect wash bag. Strong enough to tackle the toughest conditions first time around, the hose has been re-engineered to protect your essential toiletries – the hose itself is obviously water-resistant, protecting what’s inside but perhaps more importantly protecting what’s outside from leaky shampoo bottles and exploding toothpaste tubes.

The Medium Washbag is available in red hose, yellow hose or black printing blanket. The latter version is made from reclaimed printing blankets combined with our signature decommissioned fire-hose, making a bold statement. The re-engineered printing blanket creates a visually stunning textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch. This iteration maintains all the design features of the full fire-hose versions as described above.

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.

What can you fit in there?

This medium washbag is still roomy, allowing you to fit all the essentials for a weekend away or an overnight stop.

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.

Printing Blanket Range

We also offer a Printing Blanket version of our classic pieces. They are made from reclaimed printing blankets, rescued from the printing industry, and combined with our signature decommissioned fire-hose. The re-engineered black printing blanket creates a visually stunning textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch. This version maintains all the design features of the full fire-hose versions.

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 dropping you a line to say thankyou for the gorgeous wash bag I purchased for my firefighter partner, he absolutely loved it and was thrilled that 50% went to the charity as he has been a recipient of their services and gratefully appreciates the work that they do....
