I know a lot of guys who used to dream of becoming a firefighter when they grew up. Aside from the two or three that volunteer at the local fire station a few days every week, all the others became accountants, engineers, and architects. So if you’re one of those people who wanted to be a fireman (or firewoman) when you were still younger, then why not take home a small part of the action in your pocket with the Fire Hose Wallet?
Sure, you could show your love for smartphone keypads with the QWERTY Wallet or your breakfast cravings with the Toast Wallet, but nothing beats the tough, rugged, and oh-so-real texture that the Fire Hose Wallet gives you. There’s also a pretty endearing story behind how these wallets that are made from actual fire hoses came to be.
Fire Hose Wallet
Marrying a fireman had more than safety perks–it sparked Lori Burley’s design inspiration, too. Enticed by the unique texture and action-packed stories behind fire hoses, Burley transforms spent pieces into one-of-a-kind accessories. Each wallet is handmade and often bears distress marks from being in service and passing quality testing. Handmade in Colorado.
The Fire Hose Wallet is available from Uncommon Goods for $36.
