Elvis & Kresse
Elvis & Kresse create stunning life-style accessories by rescuing and re-engineering seemingly useless wastes and combining them with traditional craftsmanship. In 2005 we launched our pioneering Fire-Hose range, made from de-commissioned British fire brigade hoses; after a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives they were otherwise destined for landfill. Fire-hose was just the beginning; we have grown, creating solutions for many unwanted, unloved materials. Every effort is made to transform these precious resources into pieces you will cherish. We have partnered with the Burberry Foundation to solve our most ambitious material challenge to date: the vast amounts of leather waste created in the production of luxury leather goods. As part of this five-year partnership, Elvis & Kresse will transform 120 tonnes of off-cuts from the production of Burberry leather goods into our Fire & Hide accessories and homeware. Elvis & Kresse make honest, genuine, practical pieces; from the belt you leave on your favourite jeans to the bag you can’t leave home without. Elvis & Kresse: tradition re-engineered.
