Recycled Keepsake Flip Flop Hearts

Swahili Modern

FF17B_Set2

  • Kenyan artisans handcraft this sweet Valentine's Day keepsake, forming eco-friendly hearts from colorful recycled flip flop foam. Choose a set of 2 or 6.

    Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary depending on the colors of flip flop material available and the artisan's design—see photo for some examples. Each heart measures 3"T x 1.25"W.
  • In Kenya, artisans convert discarded flip flops into one-of-a-kind art. Operating from a small Nairobi workshop, a small co-op of Kenyan artisans create their own employment and creative opportunities while also keeping flip flop foam out of urban areas and landfills.  The artisans salvage and sanitize the flip flop foam, then create one of a kind works of art!
