Salvaged Fire Station Hoses Turned Into High-End Furniture And Accessories [Pics]

Upcycled life saving devices make for durable chairs, bags, belts and iPhone cases.

Ross Brooks

Oxgut is a company that decided fire hoses could still be useful – not in any kind of functional way, but rather as the latest range of furniture and fashion accessories – including chairs, belts, bags, and iPhone cases.

Based in Oakland, California, the company salvages its hoses from U.S. fire departments around the country – saving them from the otherwise inevitable fate of the landfill. The company itself is named after the material used to make fire hoses in the past.


The fire hose material is extremely tough and durable, making it an excellent choice for upcycling. Not only will you be impressed with the look of your latest furniture, but you can be confident that it will last for a long time.

Oxgut aren’t just saving landfill space, and designing excellent pieces of furniture, they’re also committed to working locally, donating a portion of their proceeds to The Children’s Burn Foundation.
