Reclaimed Red Fire Hose Belt by Elvis & Kresse
This attractive, unisex West End red belt looks equally at home dressed down with jeans or with a smart dress for a night on the town.
It is made from genuine, decommissioned London Fire Brigade red fire-hose which is extremely hard wearing. The hose itself is vintage (with some of it is already 25 years old) and it bears the scars of a hard life fighting fires and saving lives. The hose softens with use but never loses its strength. The buckle and eyelets are made of antique, solid brass and the buckle is 4cm wide.
This British design is both stylish and practical. The Hose is (obviously!) water resistant and may be wiped clean. This unisex belt is the perfect gift for the man or woman who enjoys both good quality and great design and also something a little different from what is commonly available. It is also a great gift idea for anyone anti-leather. Why not treat that special person in your life?
Choice of available lengths: XS (31”/79cm); S (33”/84cm); M (35”/89cm); L (37”/94cm); XL (39"/99cm); XXL (41”/104cm).
All our belts are measured from the fold that holds the buckle to the third hole.
Supplied in Elvis & Kresse branded reclaimed elegant packaging.
About Elvis & Kresse's Fire Hose Collection:
Previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years, fighting fires around the UK, the hose is perfectly robust to lead a very useful, second life as a bag, wallet or keyring! Once saved from landfill, the reclaimed hose is scrubbed to clean away the soot and grease that builds up after 25 years of active duty. Once cleaned, the resulting material is a truely green textile. In order to honour this tough, life saving material, Elvis & Kresse focused on quality craftsmanship and classic, timeless product and accessory design. All Elvis & Kresse products are hand-made and unique.
