ABOUT

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 we had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When we learned that London's damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill we mounted a rescue.
We set up Elvis & Kresse to save it.

For over a decade none of London’s fire-hose has gone to landfill and over 200 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 transformed into new luxury items, designed and sold by Elvis & Kresse.
