Colourful masterpieces which highlight an important message about marine conservation whilst bringing smiles to people all over the world.
Passionate about the ocean, its ecosystems and marine wildlife, Oceansole recycle flip-flops that are found littered on beaches and in waterways of Kenya. Every single Ocean Sole product is handcrafted to protect the oceans and teach the world about the threats of marine debris.
As a bizarre and yet very real phenomenon, thousands and thousands of flip-flops are washed up onto the East African coast creating an environmental disaster. Not only spoiling the natural beauty of the beaches and oceans, the rubber soles are swallowed & suffocated on by fish & other animals, obstruct turtle hatchlings from reaching the sea and are a man-made menace to fragile ecosystems.
Ocean Sole’s creative team of artisans transform the discarded flipflops into elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinos, dolphins, sharks, turtles and more.
