Elvis & Kresse Tote Bag

£199.00£230.00

The Tote Bag, by Elvis & Kresse, is the perfect everyday bag. Made from decommissioned London fire hose and ingeniously lined with reclaimed auction banners, making each bag unique. A more rare Yellow hose tote and a Limited Edition “Print Room” version is available, which is made from reclaimed printing blankets combined with Elvis & Kresse’s signature decommissioned fire-hose. The re-engineered black printing blanket creates a visually stunning textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch.

Previously deployed in an active duty for up to 30 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose turns a classic shape into an eco original. A perfect bag due its size and robustness, will keep you fry through a spot of rain and keep its contents dry even in a rainstorm. The over the shoulder bag is sizeable enough to support a 13” laptop, with three internal pockets. You do not need to worry about setting it down on the ground because it will wipe clean with just a cloth and some oil and vinegar. A very practical, individual and timeless bag.
