Amsterdam-based Elvis & Kresse (E&KO) make bags and more from decommissioned fire hoses. The bags are great, in a stylish deep red with an aged patina. The company makes the usual things (wallets, card cases, keychains), which are cool enough, then turns left into the über cool, with belts, guitar straps, and the hottest wrap-around cufflinks ever.
Most of the line is available in the US from Noblivity.
