T-Lab Wooden Whale

By T-Lab

From $22.00

T-Lab produces exquisitely detailed wooden carvings of PolePole animals with each piece individually hand carved and polished by artisans before being finished in Japan.

The name PolePole pronounced “poh-leh poh-leh” comes from the Swahili words meaning “slowly, slowly” – A direct reference to the carefully and slowly hand carved nature of each animal. Due to their lovingly crafted nature, each PolePole animal is slightly different – Each unique expression thoughtfully hand finished and hand painted by a skilled craftsman.

The wood used for the range is the fast growing tropical tree Albizia to ensure eco-sustainability. To further support the environment, T-Lab also reforests plantations in order to re-pay the earth for its bounty.
