Made from decommissioned fire-hoses and lined with reclaimed military grade parachute silk, this robust water resistant hand bag is stunning and easy to clean — just wipe it. It is has a sleek internal pocket for additional organization. We love that these retired hoses spent their years fighting fires and saving lives and are incredibly durable (after all, they are designed to survive the harshest of environments) are given a new start and transformed into this incredible piece.
