The Elvis & Kresse leather rugs are handwoven from hundreds of individually cut interlocking pieces of the finest quality leather; leather that we reclaim from a cross section of the very best British leathercraft manufacturers. Our leather partners cherish their hides, the waste they produce is in small seemingly unusable pieces, which is why we have had to develop this modular approach. We only work with the off-cuts produced by our leather partners, so every piece we create is unique.
Due to this modular concept our rugs are zero waste and designed for deconstruction, we want them to have a long and varied life. We have created three shapes that can interlock with infinite potential. The three shapes can help the rugs to be remade, and reinvented through time. We hope that our rugs are just the beginning. We can’t wait to see what we might make, or what you will.
We also supply custom-sized luxury underlay with each rug, which when placed underneath the leather rug make them feel wonderful underfoot.
We offer 3 standard sizes: Small, Medium and Largebut we can custom make any size and shape rug you want. The cost is £350 per M². Contact us with your request and we will arrange the rest. If you would like to customise your own rug, then please use our customisation option found by clicking "customise" above.
* The rugs are hand woven so the sizes may vary very slightly. Each rug is made to order, therefore products will be dispatched up to 3 working days from order. If there is a delay we will contact you to discuss.
Available in dark black, shiraz or caramel rescued leather. Samples available upon request.

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.
