The Elvis & Kresse Reporter Bag is perfect for all of your daily essentials. It is made from our genuine decommissioned British fire-hose and is also lined with reclaimed military-grade parachute silk. There is 1 internal zipped pocket and 1 external zipped pocket for quick access. Featuring a fully adjustable shoulder strap, the bag is unisex and is designed to be worn over the shoulder or across the body.
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, and vowed to donate 50% of our profits to charity.
For over a decade 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.
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.
