A simple desk organiser with a story to tell
We adore this desk tidy from Elvis & Kresse's fire-hose collection. In 2005, the makers had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade and their decommissioned fire-hose. As the fire-hose was destined for landfill, the maker decided to take it home and give it a second life after its life-saving first one. They vowed to donate 50% of their profits of whatever they made to The Fire Fighters Charity.
For over a decade, the team at Elvis & Kresse have been rescuing all of London's retired fire-hose by handcrafting them into luxury accessories such as this desk tidy organiser. We love this sustainable and ethical way of repurposing materials and it makes this simple desk tidy a lot more special.
