Hippopotamus - Polepole Wooden Animal by T-Lab
Hippopotamus Polepole wooden animal designed and created in Japan by T-Lab. 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.
Width 7.3cm x Depth 3.2cm x Height 4.5cm.
Made from white Albizia wood.
We love T-Lab's unique wooden animals, a beautifully made product for decoration or play.
