About T-Lab Japan
These beautiful, handmade collectables are made with non-composite natural wood from the Albizia tree. It is soft and light, and quite silky to the touch.
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.
The Albizia tree is one of the quickest growing tropical trees and it is thought that they are more sustainable than others because of their rapid growth. They also help to combat deforestation. T-Lab also plants these trees as a way to repay the earth and preserve the forests.
