This practical Billfold Wallet 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 lining is luxurious, reclaimed, military-grade parachute silk offering ultimate luxury! The hose softens with use but never loses its strength and, even better, your Oyster card (if you have one) works right through the hose so you won't have to remove it each time.
There is plenty of room with 8 credit card sections, 4 additional pockets for business cards and a divided section for notes and foreign currency.
This British design is both stylish and practical. The Hose is (obviously!) water resistant and may be wiped clean. This wallet 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?
Dimensions when folded: 12.5cm x 10cm x 1.5cm.
Supplied in Elvis & Kresse branded reclaimed parachute chord and silk dust bag.
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.
