Sudan Rhino Flip Flop Sculpture
Sudan was the last male northern white rhino on the planet. His death rendered the species functionally extinct and served as a shocking reminder of the disastrous impact of shortsighted human greed. In memory of Sudan, we have a limited edition of Sudan flip-flop sculptures. Through a partnership with Ol Pejeta Conservancy, we will donate 50% of the profits of our rhino sculpture sales toward the protection of rhinos.
Please note that each product is handmade into one of a kind item and therefore may vary slightly in size. Each product is unique, so will be of a different colour.

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 inin 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.
