Belts, wallets and t-shirts made from decomissioned firehoses!
Gallo En Fuego (guy-o en fway-go) means "Rooster on Fire" in Spanish. Each of our products is designed by 2 Red Hens Studio designer Lori Holliday. Inspired by her husband, a firefighter for fifteen years, Lori wanted to honor him and his fellow heroes, who put their own lives on the line every single day.
We’re proud to source most of our hoses from New York City. There, after years on the battle-lines, even the toughest fire hoses have to retire from the field. That’s when we get them. And their history shows: many carry distinctive marks from the fireground.
At our custom workshop we clean the hoses, all the while keeping their individual character intact. Then both the inner rubber lining and the tough woven exterior become the raw materials we use to hand-craft our Gallo en Fuego wallets, belts, and other products.
Gallo en Fuego salutes our heroes, America’s Firefighters. We’re honored to partner with National Fallen Firefighters Association in their mission to remember America’s fallen fire heroes and assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives. From every sale we donate a portion of our proceeds to help the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
Every man you see on our site is an active-duty firefighter; some are also paramedics. And they all save lives for a living. They don’t need to be professional models to look good in Gallo en Fuego gear, and neither do you. To see more of them, browse our online lookbook.
