Elvis & Kresse is a waste-saving luxury accessories brand who craft beautiful lifestyle products out of some unexpected raw materials.
Thanks to them, damaged and decommissioned London firehoses no longer end up in landfill, as they once did. Instead, they’re given a new lease of life as part of the Elvis & Kresse range of lifestyle accessories.
And they save other would-be waste materials too, like parachute silk, tea sacks and leather from the cutting room floor of premium fashion brands. Their five-year partnership with the Burberry Foundation will see at least 120 tonnes of leather off-cuts be remade into Elvis & Kresse accessories.
The brand is built on three pillars: rescue, transform, donate. This last one means that 50% of their profits always go to charities like The Fire Fighters Charity. So they’re giving back to good causes while doing good for the planet.
