Backpack Lite

Freedom to Explore







Sometimes all you need is a little balance.











Elvis & Kresse have two bags to spread the weight of your necessities across your shoulders, the compact Backpack Lite and the more capacious Backpack.



















The Fire & Hide Backpack Lite has two adjustable straps made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose, a body made from rescued Burberry leather and a reclaimed lining.

It has one quick access external zip pocket, and two internal pockets - one perfect for an iPad or important documents and the other for your day-to-day essentials with a zip. The backpack will comfortably hold your iPad, book, travel wallet, and your everyday essentials. It has a grab handle at the top so you can carry this at your side. Our signature fire-hose completes the backpack with a durable wipe-clean base.







It is available in various finite leather colours. The leather we rescue comes to us in very limited quantities, which means we can only ever craft a few pieces of any colour. The variations we have available will always change according to what leather off-cuts we are able to rescue. Every option includes handles and trim in genuine decommissioned fire-hose, which was previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK.





The Fire & Hide Collection




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.
