These look great with all styles of shirt and the hand-stitched detailing keeps the cufflinks strong and brings out the best in the hose.
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.
Carry with you the story of a hero. These extremely durable cufflinks are entirely made from reclaimed British fire hoses, available in red or yellow. 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. Manipulated by the hand of leather workers, the rugged beauty of this material is surpassed only by its practicality.
