Kresse Wesling, Founder

In 2005 I had a chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. When I learned that London’s damaged decommissioned hoses were headed to landfill I mounted a rescue, and set up Elvis & Kresse to save it. For over a decade none of London’s fire-hose have gone to landfill, over 170 tons of material has been reclaimed and 50% of our profits from the fire-hose range have gone to the Fire Fighters Charity. And that was only the beginning...
 

OUR IMPACT

Here are some of the badges Elvis and Kresse want to be recognised for when the CoGo app launches!

Circular Economy

Elvis and Kresse are practicing circular design. Up-cycling is a gateway practice but their leather system is truly revolutionary. It was designed for de and re construction and they have already done a take-back on one of the leather installations.

Durable

Elvis and Kresse are committed to repairing their products for life. If you ever have any issues with any product bought from them, simply send it back and they’ll sort it out for you.

Eco-packaging

All of the packaging at Elvis and Kresse is made by their team from reclaimed materials such as rescued parachute nylon, rescued tea sacks and recycled cardboard. They are 100% plastic free and DO NOT USE PLASTIC in any bit of packaging!

Made in the UK

The production takes place across two sites - one in Istanbul and one in Kent. They welcome visitors and you're welcome to stop by and visit the workshop and see the production process for yourself - the address is at the top of this profile!

 
SupplyChainVisibility

Supply Chain Visibility

Elvis and Kresse are radically transparent. They share everything. They run an open workshop and do open book accounting with their stakeholders (the London Fire Brigade, the Fire Fighters Charity, and the Burberry Foundation).
