"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.
From T-Labs: "We use non-composite natural wood to make all of our products.
The tree that we use called 'Albizia'.This tree is one of the quickest growing tropical trees.
It is thought that these trees are more sustainable than others.
Because of their rapid growth. They also help to combat deforestation.
Our company has started to plant these trees as a way to repay the earth - in a small way - for its bounty."
I love this gorgeous little bear! I keep it to myself as they are my favourite animal but they would be loved by children too. They are very lightweight so wouldn\'t hurt if thrown but the wood is also soft so if you have a chewer, better be careful :)
Beautiful and light weight. I purchased these for myself for display purposes as i think smaller children would easily damage them but my little boy is at the destruction stage.
