The Firehose West End Belt is a great unisex belt, made from upcycled British firehose and featuring a classic antique brass buckle and eyelets, and a 4-cm-wide design. This is the versatile yet fashion-forward belt you will never take off your favorite pair of jeans.

Made from genuine decommissioned, upcycled UK firehose, the story of the West End Belt's creation goes back to 2005, and two visionary women's chance encounter with the London Fire Brigade. Since then, over 170 tons of retired fire hose (some in active emergency use for 25 years!) has been reclaimed and repurposed instead of heading to the landfill.
