Red, blue, yellow, green... and every colour in between!

by Andrew Williams | May 06, 2015

If election madness in the UK is starting to get you down, you can console yourself with a new delivery we've received of flip flop animals! These incredible creatures are made in Kenya by Ocean Sole. Every year, thousands of lost or discarded flip flops wash up on the beaches of Kenya, causing chaos for bird sanctuaries and turtle preservation projects. Now this waste material is being turned into an incredible safari of wild animals!

Due to the nature of their production, each one of these is completely different. Even the doorstops feature a bewildering array of colours. Believe it or not, we only stock the two smallest sizes in production - Ocean Sole also create huge floor-standing creatures for zoos and museums around the world. 

We love the animals and the story behind them. You can pick up your own miniature piece of art right now!
