Description

The belt you will never take off your favourite pair of jeans. The West End is a great unisex belt, made with a classic West End buckle, and is 4cm wide. It is available with an antique brass buckle and eyelets or silver finish buckle and eyelets.

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.

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.

Elvis and Kresse run their own production facilities, one site in Kent, England and one in Istanbul, Turkey. The work is split evenly between the two. All of the material preparation and finishing happens in the UK. Most of the larger production runs happen in Istanbul, using the material preparation from the UK.
