Reader Treats Just For You!

Clutch Making Event!

The ultimate gift experience (for yourself or a friend) - make this season's hottest accessory (firefighters are involved) AND do your bit for charity

Heard about Elvis & Kresse? They’re one of Kent’s coolest brands that make luxury bags and accessories from rescued materials. Being an eco-friendly, sustainable business – that makes gorgeous, timeless pieces – is it any wonder everyone wants to get their hands on one?

Now they’re offering you the ultimate gift experience – make your own must-have accessory during one of their fun, relaxed workshops. Treat yourself, or a friend (or both) to design your own customised Fire & Hire Clutch Bag – not forgetting the drinks and nibbles – at their first workshop which will take place on Thursday 20th September at 6pm. 

Their famous clutch combines rescued leather and decommissioned fire hoses – and it’s even lined with reclaimed parachute silk. And with every bag made Elvis & Kresse donate 50% of their profits to the Fire Fighters Charity and renewable energy projects.

On the night you’ll be able to choose from a wide selection of leather colours and textures. You’ll learn how to design and assemble the panels for your clutch. The Elvis & Kresse crafts team will then finish your piece and send it out to you in wonderful reclaimed packaging.

The workshop will be held at Tonge Mill, a beautiful location and an incredible piece of history. Originally built in 1837 and restored by Elvis & Kresse in 2013 (in true Elvis & Kresse fashion).

This is your opportunity to support the business that’s doing well by doing good. There are only 7 sought-after spaces available so bag *snigger* yours quick so you don’t miss out! Book your spot at the Elvis & Kresse Clutch Making Event.

Why not treat yourself or make yours as a gift for your mum, sister or BFF? If you can’t make this one! Don’t worry there’s more…

Sat 13th October – Makers Saturday.
Thurs 8th November – Personalise A Gift.
Sat 1st & Sun 2nd December – A weekend of Christmas Shopping.
