"Pole pole" means slowly, little by little, in Swahili. The Japanese manufacturer T-Lab has the heart to convey the artisanal work of wood. The original design, while round and smooth, makes these animals very endearing.
Cut, carved, finely sanded and finally hand painted, each piece is somewhat different and quite unique! Only skilled and meticulous artisans can achieve an almost identical result from one animal to another.
T-Lab preserves the forests of Albizia Falcata which have a very rapid natural growth, committing to replanting the trees that serve its production. It has no chemical or pollutant treatment in the wood or in the paint used.
Hand-made item, size my vary slightly. Approximately 8cm long.
