Multi-award winning British sustainable luxury brand Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle bags/accessories and donating 50% of profits back to charities since 2005.
In 2005 Kresse learned that London’s damaged decommissioned fire-hoses were headed to landfill, herself and her partner Elvis mounted a rescue. They set up Elvis & Kresse to save it. For over a decade now none of London’s fire-hose has gone to landfill and over 200 tons of material has been reclaimed.
In 2017 the Burberry Foundation partnered with Elvis & Kresse to tackle the even greater global problem of leather waste. This Five-year partnership will see at least 120 tonnes of leather off-cuts from Burberry recrafted into new luxury items, designed and sold by Elvis & Kresse.
Their collections represent more than just luxury collections, they represent a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.
