What do we do
We turn flip-flops into art and functional products and in turn raise visual awareness of the problem at hand. By creating these masterpieces, we are not only creating employment for a country that has 40% unemployment, but also sending a message about how we can help our planet, our oceans and people, through creating beautiful art that portray an important message about the state of our oceans.
Meet The Family
The Ocean Sole family is the heart of it all, they are the people making the change possible and real. From wood carvers, carpenters, artists, soul shiners to marketeers, sales and entrepreneurs, all working together to create a better tomorrow with cleaner oceans and more colourful art.
Our process is manual not machine. Each piece is made with care and love, the story of each product begins as a flip-flop on someones feet, then its thrown out and ends up in the ocean. We collect it, clean it, compress it and then carve it into beautiful art to be revived again with love. Through the process, oceans are cleaned, jobs are provided, masterpieces are made, and in the end, you get something truly special and unique.
