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.

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.


Thank you for today, it was a great trip as always, and your time is so much appreciated. Your commitment to your values is such an incredible example to the students about not compromising. It is a career changing experience for them.


We would like to thank you for a most enlightening and fascinating visit to your workshop and vineyard today (Friday); it is always good to hear from people that are passionate about their life … your bags are lovely too 👍
