Your New Flame

Retired after decades of heroically battling blazes, fire hoses are reimagined as rugged rugs adding inextinguishable charm to any room. A search for a reclaimed fabric led LauraLe Wunsch to a local fire station where stacks of 50-foot long fire hoses sat unused. Intrigued by the distinctive colors, patterns, scuffs, and tatters that give each hose character, Wunsch resourcefully repurposed the material in a way that makes the most of its practically indestructible nature. Each resilient, hand-stitched rug stands up in high traffic areas and is perfect for the garage, mudroom, man cave, or entrance of your local volunteer firehouse. Handmade in Oakland, California.

In 2011 LauraLe discovered her love of furniture making and reclaimed materials.

When a search for reclaimed fabric eventually led her to a local fire station, LauraLe realized just how durable and nostalgic the fire hose could be—not to mention the variety of colors that were available. Upon learning that approximately 90% of this indestructible material ends up in landfill once it’s deemed unsafe safe for fighting fires, LauraLe couldn’t put it down. She decided to share this great resource with local artisans and collaborate to create exclusive designs with a heroic past.

My F-I-L loved this. He is a retired firefighter, so I knew he would appreciate it. He is planning on mounting it on the wall because it is "too nice" to put on the flor.
