Description

Made from decommissioned fire-hoses and lined with reclaimed linens that graced the tables of British wedding receptions, this robust water resistant bag is stunning and easy to clean — just wipe it. The wide mouth opening makes packing, unpacking and searching very easy to manage and the generous sizing means you can take everything you need for a weekend away. The bag has an easy access external pocket, an internal zip pocket and three additional internal pockets. We love that these retired hoses spent their years fighting fires and saving lives and are incredibly durable (after all, they are designed to survive the harshest of environments) are given a new start and transformed into this incredible piece.

Features:
  • Genuine British fire-hose          
  • Reclaimed wedding table cloth lining
  • Robust construction                                
  • Various pockets 
  • Reclaimed parachute silk dust bag          
  • Wipe-clean              
  • Water resistant
  • Dimensions: 55 x 28 x 27cm
  • Note: Because this item is coming from the U.K. customers may be charged an import duty.

      Material

      Decommissioned fire-hoses, reclaimed military grade parachute silk and reclaimed linens

      Product Journey

      This innovative hand bag is handmade by artisans in the U.K. from reclaimed military grade parachute silk and de-commissioned British fire brigade hoses which, after a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives, were otherwise destined for landfill. Hardware is ethically sourced in Europe through members of the Ethical Trading Initiative. Fifty percent of the profits from this item are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.
