12-07-2010 Is it Hot in Here or is it Just my Bag?

The latest fashion accessory on everyone’s lips is a red hot cracker!  Used fire hoses have been vigorously cleaned and then transformed into a stylish, streamlined and limited collection of bags, belts and wallets. You can see these designs from the Dutch fashion accessory company Elvis and Kresse. Celebrities like Cameron Diaz and former first lady Sarah Brown are already huge fans of the collection. Each product is adorned with product labels printed on old luggage tags and the bags and wallets are lined with parachute silk, resulting in an authentic and durable finish. The packaging is made up of, curiously enough, used grapefruit crates. In fact, no tiny detail is forgotten in the bid to help the fashionably, eco-conscious sleep well at night and look red hot during the day!
