A truly inspirational conversation with Kresse Wesling MBE about being Co-founder of the Luxury Sustainable 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 learned that London's damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill so Kresse and her husband set up the Elvis & Kresse Brand, in order to save that waste product.
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.
