Elvis & Kresse

A website to help win the war on waste

Elvis & Kresse, a luxury goods company with a strong sense of social responsibility, had hit a brick wall. The couple behind the business, James Henrit and Kresse Wesling, knew their website needed a thorough overhaul. This was necessary not only to provide them with up-to-date marketing and social media tools, but also to convey more effectively that although they used sensitively upcycled materials to create their belts, bags and accessories, their offering was on a par with the big names in luxury goods.

Pioneering design

Pioneering design

As part of the Social Innovation Pioneers scheme, which provides expertise to innovative social enterprises, a Deloitte Digital team worked with James and Kresse to understand their eCommerce ambitions, while also showing them some exciting possibilities to take things further. We worked closely with them throughout the process, from the wireframes, through the mockups and then on the site itself, adjusting the design live in the test environment so that they could see the effect of changes.

Red hot sales performance

Red hot sales performance

In the weeks following the new site going live, Elvis and Kresse saw a 40% increase in the number of visitors to the site and a 50% rise in their online sales, allowing the company to donate more back to the good causes they support. Users of the website have been so delighted with the improvement that they have called the company to tell them that, something that had never happened before. The site is based on the Big Commerce platform, which is very cheap to run while also making product management and order fulfilment much easier.

“Deloitte Digital took a very personal interest in the company and it started to feel a lot less like a client relationship and more like a genuinely personal relationship”
