The story of Elvis & Kresse is the story of a material worth saving. Beginning in 2005, just before the decommissioned London fire-hoses were surrendered to the landfill, the resilient, heroic material was called upon once again. Applying the best craftsmanship and design to rework this incredible resource, Elvis & Kresse transform forgotten hoses into the most resilient, unique, utilitarian wallets, belts and bags. So stylish they have been featured on the cover of Vogue. Elvis & Kresse have so far rescued over 200 tons of waste and continue to donate 50% of profits to charities related to the unique materials they reclaim, such as Fire Fighters Charity, Help For Heroes, British Forces Foundation, WWF, CafeDirect among others. Here, at Amberoot, we are very much inspired by their passion for the environment and upcycling and are totally excited to be part of their journey!
