Our Fire & Hide Saddle Bag is perfect if you are strolling around town or leaping onto your trusty steed. It is handmade from a combination of rescued leather and our genuine decommissioned British fire-hose. The lining is crafted from reclaimed military-grade parachute silk with an internal zipped pocket. Featuring a fully adjustable shoulder strap, the bag is unisex and is designed to be worn over the shoulder or across the body. 

What can you fit in there?

Elvis & Kresse like to use this bag when they are popping out or going on a quick trip around the city, it fits: a passport, foreign currency, book, smart phone, keys and an Elvis & Kresse wallet or purse.

We are excited to be able to offer so many variations of the Saddle Bag. Every option includes handles and trim in Elvis & Kresse's signature decommissioned fire-hose, which was previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK.

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.

50% of profits donated

Since 2005 we have been rescuing seemingly useless materials and lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits to charities related to those raw materials. 50% of the profits from the Fire & Hide Collection are donated to Barefoot College International and The Fire Fighters Charity.


I LOVE my bag! The colors, the feel of it, the personalisation.... all of it!

Thank you all so much for the care you put into every part of the journey

I am very enthusiastic about your products and your cause, and I recommend your website to anyone I can. The recipients of the gifts, whom I purchased your products for, are over the moon about them. I assumed, vainly, they were using your products so frequently out of kindness to me (as the gift giver) and when this was pointed out I was corrected that, "No, I LOVE this bag it's my favorite thing."
