Questions about item?
Brothers notes: A surprising yet brilliant washbag. Made from British decommissioned fire-hose, not only does this washbag have a story behind it, but it the material is water-resistant, making it perfect for protecting your essential toiletries. The bag is roomy and lined with waste parachute silk; adding to the quality and intrigue.
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.’
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.
Elvis and Kresse run their own production facilities, one site in Kent, England and one in Instanbul, Turkey. The work is split evenly between the two. All of the material preparation and finishings happens in the UK. Most of the larger production runs happens in Istanbul, using the material preparation from the UK.
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.
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.
