Something most of us probably don’t think about is where old fire hoses go when they’ve been decommissioned. The answer is: landfills all across America. Now, when hoses fail at being safe, there’s Oxgut Hose Co. to turn something that was once trash into a wonderful array of one-of-a-kind home furnishings and accessories. The Oakland, California-based company takes these old hoses and puts them into the creative hands of designers where they give them new life by way of functional and durable designs with a rich history.
