The Print Room Belt combines Elvis & Kresse’s signature rescued fire-hose with reclaimed printing blanket. Printing blankets are used in the print industry and are discarded as soon as they develop any imperfections. Master craftsmen Elvis & Kresse have re-engineered the blankets to provide a sleek matt black finish to their belts.
All items are made from reclaimed materials and Elvis and Kresse say, ‘Our process emulates kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. The refurbished pieces are worth significantly more than their new, undamaged counterparts.’
Elvis and Kresse run their own production facilities allowing them to ensure working conditions meet their high standards. They have one site in Kent, England and one in Turkey.
- The use of reclaimed materials reduces the need for virgin resources to be consumed and saves useful items from ending up in landfill.
- Reclaimed fire hose is sourced from brigades across Britain, keeping carbon miles low.
