About town

The Elvis & Kresse Reporter Bag is perfect for all of your daily essentials. It is made from our genuine decommissioned British fire-hose and is also lined with reclaimed military-grade parachute silk. There is 1 internal zipped pocket and 1 external zipped pocket for quick access. Featuring a fully adjustable shoulder strap, the bag is unisex and is designed to be worn over the shoulder or across the body.

What can you fit in there?Elvis & Kresse like to use it when they are travelling or going on a quick trip around town, it fits: an iPad, passport, foreign currency, book, smart phone, keys and an Elvis & Kresse wallet or purse.

The Reporter bag is available in our signature red decommissioned fire-hose, the more rare yellow fire-hose and the Print Room version - an elegant combination of our signature decommissioned fire-hose and reclaimed printing blankets, re-engineered to create a visually stunning matt black textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch.The Fire-hose Collection

We fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. We 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 our profits to charity.

For over a decade we 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.

Our Fire-hose pieces are more than just a collection, they represents a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.

Since 2005, Elvis & Kresse have been saving raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories, and giving away half of their profits to charity. For example, Elvis & Kresse uses the leather scraps from Burberry in the United Kingdom, material that would otherwise be discarded.

Ethically produced: Elvis & Kresse bags are ethically made in England. They pay their employees above a real living wage and are an accredited Living Wage Employer. The label has its own production location and this is a certified social enterprise as well as a founding UK B Corporation.

Eco-friendly: Elvis & Kresse makes bags from niche repurposed material. They collect 15 different waste streams and reuse them. From fire hose to leather waste to tea sacks. The full list can be found on their website! The label also purifies their own water and is building a fully circular water purification system so that no water leaves the site. In a few years they hope to be completely self-sufficient with their own water. All packaging is made by hand in their workshop in Kent. Also made from reused materials, such as old printing blankets and parachute silk.

Locally produced: The collections are made entirely locally in England, from local materials.

Good cause: Elvis & Kresse donate 50% of their profits to charities. Their charity partners are the Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College.
