Elvis & Kresse create stunning life-style accessories by re-engineering seemingly useless wastes. The innovative and pioneering Fire-Hose range is made exclusively from genuine de-commissioned British fire brigade hoses which, after a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives, were otherwise destined for landfill. 50% of Elvis & Kresse's profits are donated to charity. Elvis & Kresse are constantly thinking about waste. The instant we met the London Fire Brigade we fell in love with their old hose. Although we started in London, Elvis & Kresse now collect hose across the UK and in order to thank Britain’s Brigades, 50% of our profits go back to the Fire Fighters Charity. We scrub away all the soot, grease, and everything else that builds up after 25 years of active duty, and in the process reveal a truly remarkable, truly green textile. All of Elvis & Kresse's products have the environment at their core - industrial waste is the cornerstone of our brand... These are some of the materials we reclaim, like: Condemned fire-hose - Waste coffee sacks - Tea sacks - Scrap sail cloth - Used Air Traffic Control flight strips - Closed cell foam - Cardboard - Pallets - Parachute silk - Office furniture textiles, etc.

BRAND: Elvis & Kresse [UK].
ACCESSORY: Ladies' handbag; Tote.
MODEL: The Tooley Tote.
SIZE: 40cm x 36cm x 10cm [1 inch = 2.54cm].
PRODUCT INFORMATION: The Tooley Tote is the first collaboration between Elvis & Kresse and iconic leather craftsman, Bill Amberg. In 1861 a fire started in Tooley Street which burned for two weeks and ultimately led to the creation of London's first fire brigade. This is the inspiration behind the name of our bag and the Tooley Tote was duly launched at Brigade restaurant, which is housed in the Fire Station built on Tooley Street in 1879. This multi-pocketed, large tote has room for all your gadgets. It is made from Elvis & Kresse's signature red decommisioned fire-hose, which was previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK. This large bag has a surprisingly light feel and can be carried either over the shoulder with its adjustable strap or in the hand. A fantastic marriage of Bill Amberg design and Elvis & Kresse ethics; reclamation without compromise.
DETAILS: What can you fit in there? Well this is what Kresse carries: Phone, wallet, organiser, book, travel documents, keys, loose change, business cards, hair brush, rail card, lip balm and a few other girly essentials. - Genuine British fire-hose - Reclaimed auction banner lining material, unique to each piece - 9 inner pockets, ranging in size - Wipe-clean - Water resistant - Adjustable shoulder strap - Smaller handles for carrying at your side.
PACKAGING: Reclaimed parachute chord and silk dust bag.
