Reclaimed Fire-Hose Wallets

Posted on April 18, 2014 by Harry Jest

Elvis & Kresse have been reclaiming heroic materials ever since they fell in love with London Fire Brigade's decommissioned fire-hose. After a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives the hoses were destined for landfill. They started to rescue it in 2005 and never looked back.

Elvis & Kresse have a number of original uses for their reclaimed fire-hose including a small number of slim wallets. Amongst these the two below (the Double Cardholder and Single Cardholder) are our favourite.

Elise & Kresse don't just leave their ethical activities at using reclaimed fire-hose material  but they also donate 50% of the profits from their fire hose range to the Fire Fighters Charity.
