Brothers notes: 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.

Elvis & Kresse make bags, belts and wallets from upcycled fire hose and military parachute silk. All items are made from reclaimed materials. The process emulates kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold. The refurbished pieces are worth significantly more than their new, undamaged counterparts.’

areas for development

This is an exemplary supply chain and we have not found a clear and obvious area for development. We are proud to showcase Elvis and Kresse on Brothers We Stand.

suppliers

Elvis and Kresse run their own production facilities, one site in Kent, England and one in Turkey.

worker conditions

Elvis and Kresse run their own production facilities with their own teams, therefore working conditions meet their high standards. They employ highly skilled craftspeople and pay them well. Elvis and Kresse tracks the living and minimum wage in Turkey and always pays its workers above both, and the living wage is also paid in its UK base. Factory visits happen every two months and senior staff are always available to contact remotely if there are any matters to discuss.

environmental impact

The reclaimed fire hose is sourced from brigades across Britain, keeping carbon miles low. The use of reclaimed materials reduces the need for virgin resources to be consumed and saves useful items from ending up in landfill.
