Rather than allowing discarded flip flops to pile up on Kenya's streets, natural areas, and at waste sites, artisans transform this colorful foam footwear into distinctive modern rhino sculptures. This unique art form has a positive impact on both the environment and the artisans.
Size: 6"L x 1.5"W x 3.5"T . Each sculpture is one-of-a-kind and designs will vary.
Upcycled 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.
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.
