The Firehose & Hide Tote combines rescued leather with decommissioned fire hose and is lined with reclaimed parachute silk.
A perfect day bag due to its size and weight, this shoulder or hand bag can accommodate tablets, small notebooks, or simply your daily essentials. The bag has a zip across the top, for a tidy, secure finish and has 2 internal pockets, one with a zip closure. Colorful, beautiful, timeless.
The trim, handles and internal detailing of the Firehose & Hide range are all made from genuine decommissioned UK firehose. But that's just the beginning.
Each year, 800,000 tons of beautiful leather ends up on the cutting room floor. The waste is in small seemingly unusable pieces. In order to rescue these fragmentsthree shapes that interlock to create whole new hides were created. Each shape is individually cut before we lovingly hand weave them together, piece by piece, creating a strong, beautiful and tactile new material.
A whole new kind of luxury.
Proceeds: Each sale of these bags goes to support The Firefighters Charity in England, and SeaLegacy.
