Fireman's Fashion

Made from retired (but virtually indestructible) fire hose material, this water-resistant dopp kit redefines rugged accessories. Keeping its industrial-strength material out of the landfill, LauraLe Wunsch's design provides a handsomely utilitarian home for your shaving cream, razor, shampoo, soap, and other essential toiletries, whether you're grooming at home or on the go. The ivory, navy, and orange palette reflects the first-responder style of the material's original life and the carefree carry-on style of yours. Handmade in 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.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Firehose Toiletry Bag:

    This product met all of my criteria when searching for a toiletry bag for my husband: ethically and sustainably made, durable material for crazy travel adventures, able to hold its shape when nothing is in it, and water resistant materials used on both the inside and outside. Also, my husband was a volunteer firefighter when he was younger so it brought back some memories too. Needless to say that he loved it and would definitely recommend it to others.

      I bought this to replace an aging toiletry kit, and am very glad I did. Aside from its great looks, it's quite practical, and is the perfect size for my travel needs. I took it on vacation shortly after receiving it, and everything worked perfectly!

              It is better in person. Rugged product, great zipper and looks like it will withstand two young gentlemen's travels.

                  I bought this for my fire fighter husband who is always traveling between home, trainings, and work at the station to keep his toiletries in. He has received so many compliments about this bag at the station. It's a hit!
