Kenyan artisans transform colorful upcycled flip-flop foam into distinctive modern animal sculptures—like this warthog—rather than allowing discarded flip flops to pile up on Nairobi's streets, natural areas, and waste sites. This unique art form has a positive impact on both the environment and the artisans.
Size: approximately 5"L x 1.5"W x 3.5"T . Each warthog sculpture is handmade and one-of-a-kind, and designs and colors 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.
