What: Incredible items and an incredible story. Tidal currents wash up thousands of flip flops every year on a stretch of coastline in Kenya. These lost flip flops may be missed by their owners, but they are also an environmental hazard, interfering with birds and turtle hatching sites. Now Ocean Sole are turning them into incredible, colourful creations! Sold as decorations rather than toys, and not suitable for children under 3 years of age.
Animals in three designs - penguin, octopus and turtle. PLEASE NOTE - photos shown are for illustrative purposes only - your animal will be totally unique and will feature a range of colours! 18 - 25cm long.
How: Made in Kenya from recovered flip flops - each one is totally unique.
Who: Hand made in Kenya by the Ocean Sole project, providing employment while protecting the environment.
Why: These unusual decorations are so unusual and have a really amazing story. They are a constant talking point in the shop. Perfect for a "guess what it is" present!
