Elvis & Kresse logo
Sustainability, ethics, and philanthropy are at the core of the multi-award winning British sustainable luxury brand Elvis & Kresse. Since 2005 Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories and donating 50% of profits back to charities. They are now the longest standing and most consistent donor to The Fire Fighters Charity.

In 2005 Kresse had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When she learned that London’s damaged decommissioned 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 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 pieces are all handcrafted by highly skilled craftsmen. Paid fairly and treated fairly. 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. Check them out, they are here to stay and paving the way for a better future for us all!

Oh and, dear vegans, do not feel left out, because some of their pieces are 100% vegan! There’s even a note for you on their website.
