Reclaimed fire hose made from nitrile rubber has become the must have eco-friendly accessory, according to numerous press articles this week and quoted on the Elvis and Kresse website:
“The Fire-Hose range is made exclusively from genuine de-commissioned British fire brigade hoses which, after a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives, were otherwise destined for landfill. 50% of profits from the fire-hose line are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.”
The former fire hose material is fashioned into belts, bags, clutches, wash bags, man bags and guitar straps, and sported by fashion icons Cameron Diaz, Moke, The Phoenix Rose (who they?), and Blog regulars Lord Mandelson and Leonard Cohen.
