Elvis & Kresse
The Elvis & Kresse Wrist Band is laser cut in our workshop in Kent from genuine decommissioned fire-hose, previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years fighting fires around the UK.
The heroic fire-hose, refashioned, is naturally water resistant, wipe clean, and completely animal free. It makes for a perfect gift or subtle statement piece.
We recommend measuring your wrist and choosing the next size above your wrist measurement. For example, if your wrist measures 16cm or 17cm, then the most suitable size would be medium 18cm.
Who wears them?
A Unisex piece designed to be worn on any occasion. A perfect match for any outfit, stylish enough to wear to the most sophisticated event and tough enough to wear everyday. Kresse wears hers as much as Elvis does!
Available in red or rarer yellow fire-hose in four different sizes. Larger or smaller sizes may be available upon request.
If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by delicately laser etching directly into the fire-hose. The font used is Times New Roman.
The Fire-hose Collection
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, and vowed to donate 50% of our profits to charity.
For over a decade 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.
Our Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they represent a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.
