This Fire Hose Pencil Case in Yellow from Elvis & Kresse is entirely handmade from very rare yellow reclaimed British fire hoses. Not only does this material have a stunning colour, it's very durable and has a beautiful textile pattern that adorns the outside. This fire hose is mixed with a high visibility and repurposed parachute silk for the lining of the pencil case, that makes for a beautiful way to transport your stationary both in and out. The fire hose material is filled with history and has been deployed in active duty, helping to prevent and put out fires all over the UK before being reclaimed and repurposed into these limited and highly sought after Pencil Cases. They are available in red hose, yellow hose or black printing blanket which is made from reclaimed printing blankets and mixed with Elvis & Kresse signature decommissioned fire-hose style. This will help you to organise all your stationary in style and on top of that it's filled with a timeless British fire fighting tradition and history.
Elvis & Kresse fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. They 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 they 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.
