Fire & Hide Small Post Handbag -Black & Red. 
Designer Bags by Elvis & Kresse 

REFINED AND RECLAIMED

The Fire & Hide Post Bag is handcrafted using the finest rescued leather accentuated by Elvis & Kresse signature decommissioned fire-hose and finished with a reclaimed parachute silk lining. An elegant bag, perfect for day or night use. It is designed to be held in the hand, it also comes with a detachable shoulder strap for those that prefer, letting you easily transition from classic use to a contemporary crossbody.
WHAT CAN YOU FIT IN THERE?
This is what Kresse carries: Phone, purse, book, keys, loose change, business cards, rail card, and refillable water bottle...
The Fire & Hide Post Bag is crafted through a transformation of leather fragments from the production of Burberry leather goods. Our craftsmen individually cut and hand weave, piece by piece, these otherwise lost scraps of leather into whole new hides. The Fire & Hide Collection is the sumptuous blend of our signature fire-hose and rescued leather. The limited nature of our rescued materials means we can only ever create a few pieces in each variation. 
We are excited to be able to offer so many variations of the Post 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.

THE FIRE-HOSE COLLECTION

In 2005 Elvis & Kresse 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. Elvis & Kresse 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. They hand weave these fragments into whole new hides then lovingly recraft them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Their 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. Elvis & Kresse 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.
