British design team Elvis & Kresse have created a unique way to help the environment out with their reclaimed fire hose accessories.

The accessories are chic and perfect for the no-fuss utilitarian. The duo takes fire hoses and turns them into unique pieces such as toiletry bags, keychains and cufflinks.

The best part of the reclaimed fire hose accessories is that the material used is almost virtually indestructible. The design team also incorporates the fire hose number, adding to its history. The products are also lined with reclaimed military-grade parachute silk. These reclaimed fire hose accessories, including their packaging, are completely upcycled and perfect for the rough and tumble person in your life.

50 percent of profit made from these reclaimed fire hose accessories will be donated to a British charity called the Fire Fighters Charity. Stats for Upcycled Utilitarian Products Trending: Older & Mild
