Baby Whale Recycled Flip Flop Sculpture

Swahili Modern

FF12A

  • Using discarded flip flops that wash up on East African shores, Kenyan artisans handcraft these freestanding whale sculptures.

    Every year, ocean tides bring thousands of flip flops from all over the world to the shores of the East African coast, creating an environmental disaster for marine and beach life. Residents and artisans make the most out of this situation by transforming the foam into safari sculptures.

    Each sculpture is one-of-a-kind and designs will vary. Measures 6"L x 2"W x 3.5"T.  Size may vary slightly.

  • In Kenya, artisans convert discarded flip flops into one-of-a-kind art. Operating from a small Nairobi workshop, the dedicated group offers employment and creative opportunities while also protecting marine life and cleaning up the environment.
