Elvis & Kresse in 2015 had a chance encounter with a London Fire Brigade. After learning that Londons damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill they mounted a rescue. Elvis & Kresse was set up to save it.
For over a decade none of Londons fire-hose has gone to landfill and over 170 tones of material has been reclaimed. This includes genuine decommissioned firehoses, off-cuts from Burberry leather goods, printing blankets, auction banners, tea socks and parachute silk.
