Elvis & Kresse – From Hoses to Handbags

Luxury Lifestyle Accessories. The future of luxury is sustainable, ethical, reclaimed, open, generous and kind.

In 2005 Elvis & Kresse had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When they learned that London’s damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill the luxury brand founders mounted a rescue. For over a decade none of London’s fire-hose has gone to landfill and over 170 tons of material has been reclaimed.

In 2017 the Burberry Foundation partnered with Elvis & Kresse to tackle the even greater global problem of leather waste. This Five-year partnership will see at least 120 tonnes of leather off-cuts from Burberry recrafted into new luxury items, designed and sold by Elvis & Kresse.

Since its inception, Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories and donating 50% of profits back to charities.
