Fired Up

Retired after decades of heroically battling blazes, Michael Svendsen puts fire hose's water-tight abilities to good use once again with this rough-and-tumble wall pocket. Each resilient, hand-stitched wall accent bears the distinctive scuffs and tatters from their days on duty, giving each patch of fabric its own unique character. Small remnants of the upcycled fire hose are shaped into a sturdy pocket, topped with the original hose nozzle, and mounted on reclaimed wood, for a thoroughly rustic display. Mount one in your office, mudroom, man cave, or at the entrance of your local volunteer firehouse to display air plants, or keep clutter from spreading throughout your space. Handmade in Oakland, California.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Fire Hose Wall Pocket:

    My husband is really hard to buy gifts for. I never know what to get him. However, he's a fireman and also loves geography. As soon as I saw this peice I knew it would be a perfect gift for him! It tells a unique and special story that he appreciates. I love this peice as well because it looks great in our home. (Some fire related home decor can be really in your face, this is a perfect mix!) We both love it!

      I'm located in the Bronx in a prewar building. This creative piece of artwork really sets the apt off. I bought six of them. My only con is that I wasn't able to pick the colors. I really wanted the black and red one that is pictured. They would really work well in a "Man Cave".

      This is very meaningful to me as a former Public Safety Officer and current emergency responder with the American Red Cross. We respond to over 72,000 disasters annually and most are single family fires. We work closely with fire departments in all 50 states. Product has great meaning to me.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Fire Hose Wall Pocket:

      love the look of this, biggest problem, very small opening and when i added a very small succulent to it, i really had to compress to get into opening, so soil level was pretty high. when you go to water, if any flows over sides the soil and water mixture dirties the very porous white canvass and it is hard to get clean again. i definitely recommend sealing material before use

        The piece is surprisingly light and the hose is mounted very well. The color of the hose and the wood it is mounted on go very well together. The piece is a great addition to our walls and because of it's size - can go almost anywhere!

          Flowers in a man-cave? Most definitely not.....until now. Repurposed fire hose is the perfect way to bring a little bit of a green thumb to a space designed with a guy in mind.
