PolePole Animals


PolePole wooden animals by T-Lab of Japan.

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.

Materials: Made from Albizia wood
