Our Upcycled Fire Hose Collection

Oxgut® upcycled fire hose products are made from genuine retired fire hose salvaged from US fire departments. Each piece is hand-crafted in the U.S. honoring the inherent history in each rare find.

Our Second Service approach.

What drives us is threefold: keep this amazing material out of landfill; incorporate it into authentic product design; and give back to our community…

Giving back.Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation

Just as much as we love finding new life for fire hose, we love honoring its original purpose: saving lives. That’s why we give a portion of every sale to helping the kids at the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.

With all this material has been through, design can’t be anything but brave.

In everything we make, you’ll find a great story that lives on.  And you’ll feel the hand that made it.
