Fire & Hide Crossbody Bag
Our Fire & Hide Crossbody Bag combines rescued leather and decommissioned fire-hose and is lined with reclaimed parachute silk. The adjustable shoulder strap means you can carry it over the shoulder or across the body. This shoulder bag is a great size for your daily essentials and has an internal zip pocket to keep your valuables separate.
Available in multiple different leather colours and two different fire-hose trims. The Fire & Hide Crossbody Bag has an easy snap-shut flap and holds a purse, phone, keys, travel card, and phone charger and a few other bits and bobs.
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.
