Recycled Leather Washbag with Fire Hose Trim

£62.50

It’s a wash bag made partly from a fire hose. Obviously. The hose will have seen up to 30 years of active duty fighting fires around the UK.

Founder Kresse (her partner James is nicknamed Elvis), was horrified when the London Fire Brigade showed her the amount of disused hoses going into landfill. The two of them experimented with ways of reusing them and their business was born. The non-hose parts are made from reclaimed leather, collected from partners in the leather goods industry.

It’s a novel idea that doesn’t look in the slightest bit gimmicky. You know what we mean - bags from firehoses could easily be something that would demonstrate your commitment to upcycling, but not much else. This bag, however, stands along anything you would buy in a small boutique or a large department store.

Elvis and Kresse also donate 50 per cent of their profits to charity. They contribute to a wide range of initiatives, but anything earned from the fire hose range goes, appropriately, to The Fire Fighters Charity.

Made from reclaimed leather, fire hose and parachute silk.  

Dimensions: H 10 x W 24 x D 10 cm 

Water resistant. Wipe-clean.
