Each roll of hose used to make a Crafty American product is unique with its own "natural markings." Each mark tells it's own story. How many house fires or car fires did it help to extinguish? Own a piece of what a hero used for America!
IN THE USA
Each piece of fire hose is handcut, handpicked and handmade with pride and honor to make one of a kind flags, signs, koozies and bags.
Each roll of fire hose was previously inservice at a Fire Department around the USA. Fire Department's test the fire hose annually. When the fire hose does not pass inspection they sometimes find their way into local landfills. I recycle, reuse and repurpose the fire hose into items everyone can appreciate.
Since 2006 I have been raising funds for charities like the National Concerns of Police Survivors, Wisconsin Concerns of Police Survivors and the Police Unity Tour.
I always find unique ways to fundraise for charities. Once running and biking in a police uniform to raise awareness, now making handmade art.
It all started to honor our heroes and their families. Once joining a volunteer Fire Department I started to include the firefighter community.
