T-Lab Japan and their exquisite PolePole wooden animals have been a part of Japanese culture for over 10 years.
Hand crafted from soft white Albiza wood, these sweet and tactile characters are the definition of cuteness. The name PolePole pronounced "poh-leh poh-leh" comes from the Swahili words meaning "slowly, slowly" - A direct reference to the carefully and slowly hand carved nature of each animal. Due to their lovingly crafted nature, each PolePole animal is slightly different - Each unique expression thoughtfully hand finished and hand painted by a skilled craftsman.
Timeless and highly collectable, they are as joyful as they are beautiful
