Elephant Family - Polepole Wooden Oyako by T-Lab


Brand T-Lab

This product is unavailable

Elephant Family Polepole wooden oyako designed and created in Japan by T-Lab.  Oyako means 'parent and child' in Japanese.  Hand-crafted in Indonesia, each Polepole animal is skillfully carved by hand out of an incredibly soft, light sustainable wood called albizia, grown on T-Lab's own farms in Indonesia.  The wood is then carefully sanded to create a super smooth surface and finally hand painted and finished in Japan with the sweetest expressions and patterns.  

Polepole is pronounced 'poh-leh poh-leh' and translates as 'slowly slowly' in Swahili, referring to the careful hand-carved process used to craft each animal.  Each animal is unique and has its own charm and character as it is completely hand-made.

Large Elephant: Width 6.2cm x Depth 3.5cm x Height 5cm.
Small Elephant: Width 4cm x Depth 2.5cm x Height 3cm.

Made from white Albizia wood.

Warning. Not suitable for children under 36 months. Small parts.

We love T-Lab's unique wooden animals, a beautifully made product for decoration or play.
