About Oxgut Hose Co.®
Based in Vallejo, CA, we pick the most interesting decommissioned fire hose to put into the hands of local designers and artisans, who help give the hose a whole new purpose. They’re always coming up with new ways to integrate this amazing, resilient material into beautiful, handmade pieces.
While the name Oxgut honors the very first fire hose of Ancient Greece, our designs are circa now. Each piece features genuine fire hose salvaged from U.S. Fire Departments.
So keep an eye out for the latest in our collection.

Proud to support the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (AARBF), a California-based nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing burns and fires and providing services to those who have been affected by a burn injury.
