WHERE THERE IS SMOKE…

In 1861 a fire started in Tooley Street which burned for two weeks and ultimately led to the creation of London’s first fire brigade. This is our second Tooley, and it isn’t an update, it is a complete and total Phoenix.

This is a large, roomy bag with a single shoulder strap that will allow you to wear it long and slouchy, tight and under the arm, or snug across the body. In order to deliver some crucial internal organisation there is a zip pocket on one side and a two slot poacher style pocket on the other. We also have a handy, quick grab zip pocket on the outside of the bag.

This is the first time we have been able to offer so many variations of a single bag. Every option includes handles and trim in Elvis & Kresse’s signature decommissioned fire-hose, which was previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK. How to choose?

There is our Classic Red, our Rare Yellow, and a Print Room edition, where the main body of the bag is made with re-engineered printing blanket. This matt black textile is strong and beautiful to the touch.

Elvis & Kresse

Since 2005 Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories and donating 50% of profits back to charities.

In 2005 Elvis & Kresse had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When they learnt that London's damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill they mounted a rescue. They set up Elvis & Kresse to save it. 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.
