The Elvis & Kresse card holder is handmade from genuine decommissioned fire-hose. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 30 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose softens with use but never loses its strength. If you want to protect your business cards, the hose will come to the rescue… And if, like Elvis, you don’t like to carry a bulky wallet in your trouser pocket, you can carry all your credit cards and enough cash for a night out in vintage sleek. Fear not – your Oyster card (if you have one) works right through the hose.
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.
The 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.
50% of profits from the sale of this product are donated to The Fire Fighters Charity.
