About The Process + Product:
Give the gift of art with a purpose – send an Ocean Sole sculpture to your friend and make a positive impact on the environment while celebrating the beauty of recycled materials!
Each sculpture is handcrafted by skilled artisans in Kenya, using colorful flip flops collected from beaches and waterways. The process not only helps in cleaning up the ocean but also provides employment opportunities for local communities.
When you send an Ocean Sole sculpture to a friend, you're not just gifting a beautiful and meaningful piece of art; you're also contributing to the global effort to reduce plastic pollution. The sculptures are not only visually stunning but also carry a powerful message about sustainability and the importance of caring for our oceans.
Choose from a variety of animal and marine-themed sculptures that are sure to delight and inspire your friend. Whether it's a playful sea turtle, a majestic elephant, or a vibrant lion, each sculpture tells a story of conservation and creativity.
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.

OUR ART MAKES A STATEMENT
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.
YOUR PURCHASE MAKES
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.
OUR PROCESS IS MANUAL
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.
