The Elvis & Kresse Soft Briefcase is made by combining our signature decommissioned fire-hose with reclaimed printing blankets. It also features a reclaimed military-grade parachute silk lining. This piece is the first to incorporate printing blankets, a raw material that we have been developing for some time. It is a perfect business bag, with a padded pocket for a 13" laptop and plenty of room for chargers, documents and any other essentials.
Available with yellow fire-hose accents against the black printing blanket body.
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.
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.
