Genuine decommissioned British fire-hose Reclaimed lining from military-grade parachute silk
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 Elvis & Kresse ladies’ purse is made from genuine decommissioned red fire-hose and lined with reclaimed military grade parachute silk. Featuring 12 credit card slots, a zipped coin compartment, a section for notes and 2 additional sections for receipts, this is a functional yet stylish accessory for the rough and tumble gal
50-percent of all proceeds are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity. Includes sections for credit cards, business cards, notes and a zip compartment for coins.
