This wash bag made from recycled fire hose makes a nice luxury gift. The fire hose has retired after around 25 years of important work, but is still tough and waterproof, and superior to leather. Lined with waste parachute silk (likely nylon, modern ‘silk’ rarely is), it’s ideal to store your toiletries or for an overnight stay.
About the Maker
Elvis & Kresse (Kent) is a social enterprise, which collects fire hose destined for landfill, to turn into luxury travel goods and bags. These items are expensive (to rival designer goods), but the company donates 50% of profits to charities that help our firefighters.
