Elvis & Kresse have been reclaiming heroic materials ever since they fell in love with London Fire Brigade's decommissioned fire-hose. After a distinguished career saving lives the hoses were destined for landfill. They started to rescue in 2005 and never looked back. More materials soon followed, Kresse has always had an obsession with waste and likes nothing better than intercepting something new. The challenge is the same every time - what can they do to prove value, change perception, and respect resources. Elvis & Kresse dreams of a time without landfill, when everything is recycled or composted. Between now and then they know there are far too many incredible materials that will either languish underground or suffer the indignity of incineration. They are constantly searching for more materials to grow their range of bags, belts and wallets and have rescued over 200 tonnes so far.
