Flip flop art from Kenya

The story behind this flip flop art from Kenya is very special. You probably also own a nice pair of flip flops and when they break you have new ones for a small amount. The cheaper variants are made of foam rubber and are therefore very popular, especially in developing countries. Where you throw your old, worn-out flip flops in the textile bin, that is often not an option in countries such as Kenya. For example, the flip flops are left behind in nature and eventually end up in the ocean. A plastic soup is then created in the ocean, with serious consequences for people and the environment. The Ocean Sole employees clean the washed-up flip flops and glue them together. The creative artisans then make figurines from the recycled flip flops in their own way. Each figurine is unique in color and made with a lot of love and dedication.

Choosing your flip flop art

If you want to buy an Ocean Sole figurine, you can use our WhatsApp service. The figurines are all unique in their color scheme, because the flip flop remains that are used are glued together. One figurine can therefore be a lot more colorful in terms of color compared to another. With our WhatsApp service you choose the figurine that best suits your interior or what you like best to give to someone as a gift. In addition, you can always safely order your Ocean Sole products via Nic&Mic and pay (afterwards).

The benefits of recycled art

Using and recycling old flip flops to make art of course has many advantages. Ocean Sole's working method addresses several social points, which are being improved both on a small scale in Kenya and on a global scale:

  • Preventing and remedying pollution of the land and the sea, by removing the plastic.
  • Creating employment, both with cleaning up the flip flops and with the design and making of the figurines.
  • Use of recycled material instead of wood, among other things.

Many craftsmen in Kenya work with wood from home and switch to recycled flip flops through Ocean Sole. When you buy a figurine you get real feel-good art at home! Of course this is also a great gift to give.
