Elvis & Kresse Weekend Bag
The repurposing of old products or materials to be used for a completely different function is a great way to reduce waste and operate more sustainably. And sometimes the results are truly astonishing. London-based lifestyle designer Elvis & Kresse has been heroically crafting sustainable and ethical luxury accessories for the better part of 15 years. Their primary medium is decommissioned fire hose, previously deployed in active duty across the UK for up to 25 years, which would have otherwise ended up in landfills. This hard-wearing hose is well suited for the rough and tumble that comes with everyday use, making it perfect for Elvis & Kresse’s line of travel bags and accessories. Their popular Weekend Bag offers a wide mouth opening, generous cargo space and plenty of pockets, to reduce the fire drill that comes with packing and unpacking for a quick weekend away. Each beautifully crafted bag is totally unique, so no two are the same, and 50% of all profits are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.
