T-Lab Polepole Animal Subscription*

From: £11.20 / month

“Pole pole” means slowly, little by little, in Swahili. The Japanese manufacturer T-Lab has the heart to convey the artisan work of wood. The original design, while round and smooth, makes these animals very endearing.

*Please note these are not toys. These are adult collectables.

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. Figures are approximately approximately 6cm high (with variation between animals, for example, the mouse is 5.8cm as a size guide).

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.”
