T-Lab Japan and their beautiful wooden animals have been a part of Japanese culture for over 10 years. Polepole (poh-leh poh-leh) meaning slowly, slowly in Swahili pays tribute to the way these animals are carefully and slowly hand crafted.
Carved from Albiza wood and delicately hand-painted with expressions and patterns, each animal is uniquely different.
The wood used for the range is the fast-growing tropical tree Albizia to ensure eco-sustainability. To further support the environment, T-Lab also reforests plantations.
