This reclaimed fire hose wash bag is made from genuine decommissioned British fire-hose and lined with high visibility reclaimed parachute silk. Previously deployed in active duty for up to 30 years, fighting fires around the UK, fire-hose makes a perfect wash bag. Strong enough to tackle the toughest conditions first time around, the hose has been re-engineered to protect your toiletries; the hose itself is obviously water resistant, protecting what’s inside but perhaps more importantly protecting what’s outside from leaky shampoo bottles and exploding toothpaste tubes! As our reviews will show you our Fire-hose Washbag makes a great gift for many different people from firefighters to vegans. 50% of the profits from Elvis & Kresse’s Fire Hose Collection are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity. The hose is vintage, some of our hoses have survived 25 years of active service, fighting fires and saving lives. And our pieces make great ethical, sustainable, vegan gifts. Why not add a name, initials, an important date to remember? We can personalise your wash bag with up to 20 characters, etched (as you are looking at the broad side of the bag) in the bottom, right corner. What can you fit in there? Toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, shaving brush and cream, soap, shampoo, hairbrush and nail clippers. Kresse manages to cram it a little fuller with some conditioner and moisturiser and obviously loses the shaving kit, but you get the picture. The fire hose is vintage and there are colour variations, no two reds are the same. Some pieces may bear the original hose markings or the scars of a long life of active duty. Fire-hose and lined with high visibility parachute silk and premium metal YKK zip.
