The Independent carried out an independent review of purses recently and tested a range of women’s wallets to find the best design and style. The Fire & Hide Purse by Elvis & Kresse was voted THE best purse.

What the Independent has to say:

“Everything about this Elvis & Kresse purse is thoughtfully designed, from the hand-woven leather made from offcuts that would otherwise be discarded, to the decommissioned fire hose trim and reclaimed parachute silk lining. There are a mammoth 12 card slots, a zipped coin pocket and additional slots roomy enough to hold an iPhone. Plus 50 per cent of the brand’s profits go to charity.

Elvis & Kresse’s roomy wallet ticked all the boxes in terms of style, craftsmanship, sustainability and values, and for that reason it’s our winner.”

About the The Fire & Hide Collection

Every year, 800,000 tonnes of leather ends up on the cutting room floor. Our leather partners cherish their hides, but no matter how carefully they cut their patterns, there will always be small seemingly unusable offcuts. To rescue this leather we developed a unique modular approach. We hand weave these fragments into whole new hides then lovingly recraft them into sustainable luxury bags and accessories. Our commitment to rescuing British fire-hoses remains the same, the trim, handles and internal detailing of the Fire & Hide range are all made from genuine decommissioned fire-hose. And we continue to donate 50% of profits to charity.

The Elvis & Kresse's Fire & Hide Collection represents a whole new kind of luxury. One that is sustainable, ethical, transparent, generous and kind.
