I love that this giraffe ??is made out of flip flops and its so colorful. Everyone that see it wants to know more about it and where I got it from. It so cute and brightens up any room.

"Colorful and cute"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have travel to East Africa many times and have purchased flip flop animal sculptures for family and friends but never for myself. When I saw the giraffe, I had to have him. I love supporting such a great project to recycle flip flops into awesome works of art. Lots of time and love go into making these forever creations. Colors are vibrant and high quality craftsmanship.

Purchased to go along side a tall giraffe statue. Amazing how the artist created it out of flip flops.

I always make purchases for my family, but this one was for me!!! I first purchased Flip Flop sculpture animals for gifts in Tanzania , East Africa, I was excited when I saw them on Novica. Love this brilliantly colored zebra. Outstanding craftsmanship and a unique treasure!
