Feuerwear recycles culled firehoses to make high-quality bags, backpacks and accessories. Brothers Martin and Robert Klüsener are enthusiastic about their mission of creating sustainable fashion.
Martin designs sophisticated products from robust firehose that are individual and urban. Robert facilitates completely sustainable upcycling production in Europe, thanks to his smart business strategy. This makes Feuerwear products ideal companions for everyday missions.
The perfect companion for the missions of daily life
Powered by many years of experience, company founder and designer Martin Klüsener is constantly creating new products with fire hose. Even when the prototype is finished, the job is not yet done. Each product first undergoes a lengthy test phase in everyday use.
Our testers use the bags and accessories and report back suggestions for improvements, which we then implement in the final products. This way we ensure that they are fitted with many useful details to precisely meet the needs of our customers
The Feuerwear concept is based on our mission to make new products out of used material. This so-called upcycling forms the basis of our production. In 2012 the TÜV Rheinland certification agency created an ecological balance sheet for Feuerwear.
This evaluation proves that we make a considerable contribution towards environmental protection through upcycling of fire hoses and PVC tarpaulins. We save precious energy and resources that would otherwise be used in the manufacture of new materials.
But upcycling alone isn’t enough for us. We try to operate as sustainably as possible in everything we do. We counterbalance the CO2 emissions that result from the transport and shipping of our products with climate projects. We use green electricity from Greenpeace Energy. Our firehoses are scrubbed clean with sustainable cleaning agents made from renewable raw materials.
