Elvis & Kresse Purse

£110.00£120.00

A substantial purse in more ways than one, this red purse by Elivis & Kresse is made from lovingly repurposed London fire hose. It is spacious, with pockets for twelve cards, a zipped coin compartment, note section and two additional sections for receipts. The durable purse is composed of reclaimed “rescue-me” orange lining from military-grade parachutes and a water-resistant, wipe-clean exterior. The fire hose material will soften with age but its strength will never tire.
