Oxgut® upcycled fire hose products are made from genuine retired fire hose salvaged from US fire departments. Each piece is hand-crafted in the U.S. honoring the inherent history in each rare find. What drives founder LauraLe Wunsch is threefold: keep this amazing material out of landfill; incorporate it into authentic product design; and give back to our community. Just as much as she loves finding new life for fire hose, Oxgut upholds honoring its original purpose: saving lives. That’s why they give a portion of every sale to helping the kids at the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.
