Discovering Elvis and Kresse; the reclamation God!

You may think I am exaggerating when I say ''Elvis and Kresse'' are reclamation gods, but the design and skill that goes into these bags and accessories is umbelieveable. These are made out of old fire hoses and are simply stunning. Compared to the usual leather goods that we are shown to give men as gifts these items are truly individual, a work of genius and offer so much more than the usual.
I have been introduced to them by Lush Labels UK who have kindly allowed us to share part of their fire hose collection. These items are all made from genuine British fire brigade old hoses that were destined for the land fills! They have been reclaimed and restored into some beautiful items that would suit gentlemen of all ages. What's not to love? Not only are these products a perfect example of craftsmanship but they really are something special. Pictures don't do them justice as once you touch these you just become immersed in their beauty & nostalgia. Not only are Elvis and Kresse recycling hoses but all the items come packed in reclaimed fabric covers. Parachute seems to be the most used, but paper sacking is another form of packaging they use. Just a great brand for the boys!
