The wood of this series has been left closer to its natural form with a raw wood finish.
The name PolePole (pronounced "poh-leh poh-leh") meaning "slowly, slowly" in Swahili, is a direct reference to the carefully and slowly hand carved nature of each animal.
Due to their lovingly handmade nature, each PolePole animal is slightly different - Each unique expression thoughtfully hand finished and painted by a skilled craftsman. No two piece are exactly the same, making every Polepole animal a special little treasure to keep for years to come.
Every Polepole piece was hand crafted from soft white Albizia wood, one of the fastest growing tropical tree in the world to ensure eco-sustainability.
Each Polepole animal varies in size but is roughly 7-10cm in height.
