FAQ

Where can you buy your products?

How do we engage with the community?

 

In the beginning, inspired by the toys children were making out of flip-flop debris, Julie Church, the Ocean Sole Founder, encouraged their mothers to collect, wash and cut the discarded flip-flops into colourful products. Today, we engage through education, visiting schools and organising events to spread knowledge in Kenya and worldwide. 

 

Can I make a custom order?

 

We can pretty much make almost anything from recycled flip-flops. If you send a request to solemates@oceansoleafrica.com, we’ll get back to you within 24 hours with the details you need.
