These freestanding hippo sculptures are made from discarded flip flops that have been hand-formed, carved, and cemented together by artisans in Kenya.
These whimsical hippo sculptures are a colorful and eco-friendly way to recycle flip flops that would otherwise litter urban Nairobi or sit in landfills. We work directly with a small co-op of Kenyan artisans who collect, clean and transform foam footwear into bold modern safari art 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 keeping this reusable material from littering urban areas or clogging up landfills.
