The Elvis & Kresse rescued Leather Cubes are constructed from interlocking pieces of the finest quality leather; leather that we reclaim from a cross section of the very best British leathercraft manufacturers. Our leather partners cherish their hides, the waste they produce is in small seemingly unusable pieces, which is why we have had to develop this modular approach. We only work with the off-cuts produced by our leather partners so every piece we create is unique.
Ethically handmade in England, these cubes make ideal doorstops, pouffes, furniture, wedding gifts or simply exquisite objects. They are nice and heavy, stuffed completely with reclaimed leather of the same quality, making them 100% reclaimed and zero waste. They can also be personalised and if you would like a larger size, contact us with your request and we will arrange the rest.
Due to the modular concept our cubes are designed for deconstruction, we want them to have a long and varied life. We have created three shapes that can interlock with infinite potential. The three shapes can help the cubes to be remade, and reinvented through time. We hope that our cubes are just the beginning. We can’t wait to see what we might make, or what you will.
Available in Black, Caramel or Shiraz leather, in Small, Medium or Large.
If you choose the personalisation option, this is achieved by laser etching directly into the leather. We recommend not more than 20 characters. The font used is Times New Roman.

Since 2005, Elvis & Kresse have been saving raw materials, transforming them into luxury lifestyle accessories, and giving away half of their profits to charity. For example, Elvis & Kresse uses the leather scraps from Burberry in the United Kingdom, material that would otherwise be discarded.
Ethically produced: Elvis & Kresse bags are ethically made in England. They pay their employees above a real living wage and are an accredited Living Wage Employer. The label has its own production location and this is a certified social enterprise as well as a founding UK B Corporation.
Eco-friendly: Elvis & Kresse makes bags from niche repurposed material. They collect 15 different waste streams and reuse them. From fire hose to leather waste to tea sacks. The full list can be found on their website! The label also purifies their own water and is building a fully circular water purification system so that no water leaves the site. In a few years they hope to be completely self-sufficient with their own water. All packaging is made by hand in their workshop in Kent. Also made from reused materials, such as old printing blankets and parachute silk.
Locally produced: The collections are made entirely locally in England, from local materials.
Good cause: Elvis & Kresse donate 50% of their profits to charities. Their charity partners are the Fire Fighters Charity and Barefoot College.
