Stripes, Pinstripes and Plaid | Elvis & Kresse Luxury Bag Giveaway

Elvis & Kresse bag giveaway
Not only am I wearing my new favourite combination of pinstripes and plaid, but I've thrown in more stripes for good measure with this incredible luxury bag from Elvis & Kresse - and you could win one like it (or another from their range) in my giveaway! You won't believe the story behind this bag:

Elvis & Kresse are a British company that have been "reclaiming heroic materials ever since we fell in love with London Fire Brigade's decommissioned fire-hose. After a distinguished career fighting fires and saving lives the hoses were destined for landfill. We started to rescue it in 2005 and never looked back". In other words this bag - and the other pieces they sell - are all made of recycled fire hoses... how amazing is that?? This is eco fashion at its very finest.

For this giveaway Elvis & Kresse are offering a bag of your choice up to the value of £200 (or a gift card worth that amount*). For myself I chose the bowling bag as it is the only one that includes the ultra rare black fire hose, but I could have quite happily chosen any of the other bags they've designed... I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this bag. It genuinely looks like it's vintage, and because of the materials used each one is unique (I love the fact that mine's "called" Angus). I decided to style it with my new plaid jacket from Asos and pinstripe trousers, and then threw in some bright white with a roll neck and Adidas Superstar Originals. Result: Yet another new favourite outfit.

A few more amazing things to note:
  • Reclaimed parachute silk is used for the lining of the bags.
  • They re-distribute up to 50% of profits to projects and charities related to the unique materials they reclaim. 50% of the profits from their fire hose range are donated to the Fire Fighters Charity.
  • The bag has a unique (and addictive) smell due the hoses used which you'll absolutely love (it reminds me of my childhood toys).

The generous people at Elvis & Kresse are also offering 15% off all orders on their website - use code 'notlamb': http://elvisandkresse.com

The giveaway is open internationally and entry is easy via the widget below. What are you waiting for - get entering! GOOD LUCK :)

*Amendment 16:15 12/01/2014: The value has been changed from £205 to £200 as the only bag at £205 has literally just sold out. Although it wouldn't have affected what would have been available as a prize, as a gesture we are now also offering an alternative prize of a gift card worth £200 to put towards a higher value item. Apologies.
