Description

Elvis & Kresse Fire Hose Messenger Bag is a luxury sustainable bag.

The Elvis & Kresse Messenger Bag is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose and a has a reclaimed black cotton and military-grade parachute silk lining. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 30 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose is perfectly robust for an every day bag and the full length flap, with hidden magnet closures, will keep your valuables safe. It has an internal zip pocket, a laptop divider and 1 full length zipped pocket under the flap.
WHAT CAN YOU FIT IN THERE?
This is a deceptively roomy bag, big enough for a 13" laptop, an A4 pad and all your other daily essentials, but small enough just to chuck in your tablet, wallet and keys and go....

THE FIRE-HOSE COLLECTION

Elvis & Kresse fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. They 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 their profits to charity. 

For over a decade Elvis & Kresse 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.
