Retired after decades of heroically battling blazes, fire hoses are reimagined as rugged mats that will add 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, and scuffs that give each hose its own character, she resourcefully repurposed the material in a way that makes the most of the practically indestructible fabric. No dyes or colors are added, and the mat will fade handsomely over time. The resilient, hand-stitched mats stand up in high foot traffic, so they’re perfect for the garage, mudroom, man cave, or entrance of your local volunteer firehouse. Handmade in Oakland, California.
