Hefty Hippopotamus Recycled Flip Flop Sculpture

Swahili Modern

FF11C

  • This large hippopotamus is handcrafted from discarded flip flops that have been crafted into freestanding sculptures by Kenyan artisans.

    These statement sculptures are a colorful and eco-friendly way to upcycle 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 13.5"W x 9.5"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 cleaning up the environment.
