About Our Process

For 3.5 billion people living below the poverty line, the flip flop remains the most affordable form of footwear. And as a result, most of them end up in the ocean.

Each year we aim to upcycle 1 million+ flip flops found washed up across the Kenyan beaches which our local artisans then turn into art.

If you are interested in learning more about our process of collecting, washing, blocking, carving, smoothing, and perfecting our small batch artwork, click here to watch a short video.



Not only does each piece make an impact in our social conservation efforts and the lives of many Kenyans, it makes a beautiful statement and conversation piece in your home and garden.


100% of our profits goes directly back into our conservation efforts and enriching the lives of over 1,000 Kenyans through the collection of flip-flops and direct employment.

We are passionate about our people, purpose, and the planet. And through your purchase you are directly helping our efforts.


Each piece is made with care and love, the story of each product begins as a flip-flop on someones feet, then its thrown out and ends up in the ocean.

We collect it, clean it, compress it and then carve it into beautiful art to be revived again with love.
