The T-Lab Craftsman make each piece by hand so every single piece is unique. Each animal is carved from fast-growing White Albizia wood, which T-Lab replants on their farm in Indonesia making it a very sustainable product.

Polepole (pronounced poh-leh poh-leh) means 'slowly slowly' in Swahili, which describes how carefully these are made: each animal is carved and sanded by hand, then hand-painted with adorable details.
