Elvis & Kresse for Vaela
We are excited to be partnering with the fabulous Elvis & Kresse in bringing you this belt. On top of being a wonderful use of a former waste product, this belt goes so very well with our jeans.
This belt is handmade with the Elvis & Kresse signature decommissioned fire-hose. It is 4cm wide and is available with an antique brass buckle and eyelets, or silver finish buckle and eyelets. It's the belt you will never take off your favourite pair of Vaela jeans.
The belt is made to order, which can take an extra day or two.
Elvis & Kresse, The Fire-hose Collection
Elvis & Kresse was founded in 2005 to rescue London’s damaged, decommissioned fire-hoses. After a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives the hoses were otherwise destined for landfill. We transform them into stunning life-style accessories through traditional craftsmanship and timeless design.
Due to the heroic nature of our vintage fire-hose each piece we make is entirely unique. Every year since, Elvis & Kresse have donated 50% of their profits from the Fire-hose Collection to The Fire Fighters Charity. This heroic material, once used to save lives, gets a second chance to keep giving back.

Size & Fit
The belt is measured from the fold that holds the buckle to the third hole.
Sizes are: XS - 31” S - 33” M - 35” L - 37” XL - 39” XXL - 41”
The best way to ensure you receive the correct size is to measure an existing belt from the fold to the hole that you most use, then pick the corresponding size from the table above. Other sizes may be available by request.
I have worn the same belt for over 10 years but have been wearing this belt non-stop for the past couple of months since receiving it. The story and sustainability behind it are great - but the true test is does it look good, is it comfortable and is it built to last. Gold star for all of the above!
NB: I was kindly gifted this belt by Jo @ Vaela.
This is a great belt. It’s robust, bold, comfortable and carefully crafted. I love the story behind the brand and the fact that this belt is made from a decommissioned fire-hose is a fabulous idea. It looks good and feels good wearing this. Fantastic.
I love the fire hose belt, especially knowing that it’s constructed from disused fire hoses that otherwise would have ended up in the trash. I have bought four more for friends, all of whom love the style and the story behind the material.
