Elvis & Kresse like to use it when they are travelling or going on a quick trip around town, it fits: an iPad, passport, foreign currency, book, smart phone, keys and an Elvis & Kresse wallet or purse.
The Reporter bag is available in our signature red decommissioned fire-hose, the more rare yellow fire-hose and the Print Room version - an elegant combination of our signature decommissioned fire-hose and reclaimed printing blankets, re-engineered to create a visually stunning matt black textile that is strong and beautiful to the touch.
They fell in love with London's decommissioned fire-hose back in 2005 through a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. Hence took this lifesaving material home determined to breathe new life into it and save it from its otherwise inevitable end in landfill, and vowed to donate 50% of our profits to charity.
For over a decade Elvis and Kresse have been rescuing all of London's retired fire-hose by lovingly handcrafting them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Every year since, they have donated 50% of the profits from the Fire-hose Collection to The Fire Fighters Charity. This heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.
These goodies are more than just a collection, they represents a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind. When you buy from Pookipoiga, we fight landfill in our own way all while helping humanity various different charities through our Cheese and wine nights plus donating a meal to Australians in need from rescued food through SecondBite, with every purchase
