"Pole pole"(poh-leh poh-leh) means slowly, slowly in Swahili and describes how these animals are created. Each animal is hand carved and filed from Albizia soft wood and then hand-painted with no varnish. Due to their handcrafted nature, each pole pole animal is slightly different.

The 'Albizia' tree is one of the quickest growing tropical trees. �These trees are sustainable because of their rapid growth.

T-Lab combats deforestation by replanting every tree to repay the earth.

Each animal is carefully hand-carved from a light white wood and hand-painted by expert craftsmen. These gorgeous animals are made by the artisans of a dedicated workshop in the village of Tirabo, Bali in Indonesia.

The feel of the smoothly sanded wood and the sweetly painted expressions will bring a smile to your face and a sense of warmth to your home!

Collect several and create your own personal menagerie at home or line them up on your desk at work!
