In 2008 the Ocean Sole team built a 18ft giraffe to be displayed during Fashion Week in Rome as part of the International Trade Centre’s initiative to raise awareness for ethical fashion.

We called him “Twiga”, Swahili for “giraffe”.

Twiga was made to:

-Show the possibility of using recycled and alternative materials in design

-Raise awareness for ethical fashion

Ocean Sole puts 10% of its production cost into the foundation.
