Welcome to the home of Ocean Sole in the UK.
It’s time to clean up the oceans.
Buying art made by Ocean Sole helps achieve that!
We are a social enterprise that pays coastal communities to collect c. 400,000 discarded flip flops off the beaches of Kenya each year. We now employ 50 full time artists in Kenya who turn the flip flops into art & functional items.
With your help, we aim to set up recycling and carving operations around the world.
Such a great concept – cleaning the oceans and providing employment. My elephant head looks brilliant. Really good service too!
I now have a giraffe, elephant and turtle and they are all gorgeous – I really love how you carve a flip flop shape into each piece. Thanks for all your good work.
Thank you for doing this, I’m a diver and it makes me so sad to see the amount of plastic I’m seeing in the sea. The sculptures are awesome and I will definitely be buying again.
