HoseWear

Fire hoses at Kohtla-JärveWe thought it’s rather silly that perfectly good material is wasted when firehoses reach their standard time of use, so we gave them new life.

Hosewear got started as the first project to ever get funded by Hooandja.ee, Estonia’s answer to Kickstarter (if there ever was a related question). After a successful debut on Hooandja the team has grown to 5 people, sourced almost 40 km of fire hoses from Estonia and Norway and sold it products to more than 30 countries around the world.

This has saved a good many animal skins, gallons of water, oil and other resources used for making bags.
