Recycled London Fire-Hose Coaster
The Elvis & Kresse Coasters are made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose and backed with black reclaimed printing blanket. The re-engineered black printing blanket creates a visually stunning textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch, and that's just on the back side. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose softens with use but never loses its strength.
Available in red and the more rare yellow fire-hose.

THE FIRE-HOSE COLLECTION
Elvis & Kresse fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. They took this lifesaving material home determined to breathe new life into it and save it from its otherwise inevitable end in landfill, and vowed to donate 50% of their profits to charity.
For over a decade they have been rescuing all of London's retired fire-hose by lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of the profits from the Fire-hose Collection to The Fire Fighters Charity. This heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.
Their Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they represent a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.
