Recycled fire hose belts to the rescue

Comments (0)

fire%20hose%20belt.jpgHaving originally been hoses used by the London Fire Brigade, these belts have seen it all. The idea to turn hoses into belts came about after the makers scrubbed away all the soot, grease, and everything else that builds up after 25 years of active duty, to discover a truly remarkable, truly green textile.

The natural colour is remarkably similar to tanned leather, and would look great contrasted against blue denim. The belts are unisex, but there's a great range of designs from skinny to studded, with prices starting at £36 from Natural Collection. What's more, with each purchase you'll be giving a donation to the LFB Benevolent Fund.
