Not your everyday standard Notebook. The Elvis & Kresse Notebook cover is bound in our signature decommissioned fire-hose, previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years. Inlayed with heroic fire fighting history, it comes in hard-back with 98 leaves of recycled unbleached cream paper which can be replaced at any time with either Elvis & Kresse refills or your preferred A5 refill pad. The inside of our Notebook cover can be personalised making this a wonderful gift for a loved one or as something special just for you...

Available in red and rarer yellow fire-hose or the black Print Room version.

If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the fire-hose, or paper if requested. We recommend not more than 20 characters per line. The font used is Times New Roman.

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.


I wanted to say a massive thank you for the precious journal that I received from your company. I am an avid writer and have journaled since I was 16, a long time ago – and never have I owned such a special journal. I think what you and Elvis are doing is incredible, the feel of the material is beautiful, it is sturdy and will be long-lasting and I wanted you to know that for the rest of my life, I will fill this beautiful cover with paper and re-use this. Thank you again for this beautiful token.


Absolutely in love with my Elvis & Kresse A5 notebook cover. It's made from old London fire fighting hoses and feels and looks amazing!
