Ethical, Sustainable Fashion
Fire-hose is a high grade synthetic rubber. It is very easy to maintain. Keep it out of direct sunlight, wipe clean with a damp cloth if it gets dirty and spot clean any lining, also with a damp cloth. Any larger issues, get in touch and we will find a way to help.
Design traditionally begins with an idea, for Elvis & Kresse, design begins with a problem. It is the material and the scale of the problem which dictate what we will make and how we make it. In the case of the hose, we scrubbed away the soot and grease that builds up after 25 years of active duty and discovered a truly remarkable, truly green textile. We wanted to honour this tough, life saving material, hence our focus on quality craftsmanship and classic, timeless design. We build as much value as we can into each piece and style them for use beyond single seasons. All Elvis & Kresse products are hand-made and unique.
The outer skin of the Elvis & Kresse iPad case is made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose and is extremely hard wearing, offering ultimate protection to your iPad. The hose itself is vintage, some of it is already 25 years old, and bears the scars of a hard life fighting fires. The lining is reclaimed parachute silk and there is an additional layer of reclaimed closed-cell foam, ensuring that your iPad screen stays protected.
