T-Lab's Pole Pole Animal - Whale is soft, light and irresistably adorable. Each of their wooden animals is shaped, sanded and painted by hand, and therefore unique — yet also almost identical. Everything is slightly different when you pay a lot of attention to it, but almost indistinguishable, and every animal has its own facial expression, emanating from a unique emotion.
In Swahili, "pole pole" means "little by little".

T-Lab x Misc-store Amsterdam
The minimalist, soft and rounded design of these wooden statues hides a deeper reflection than one might think. T-Lab's motto is to "warm people's hearts" with craftsmanship passed "from their hand to your hand".
In addition to the artistic and technical aspect necessary for any artisanal product, T-Lab gives a whole philosophical and social meaning to its creations: their slogan (in Japanese) is not easy to translate literally, but it essentially means "Slowness, in a form", or "To shape slowness". It gives the name "pole pole" a whole new meaning, doesn't it?
Additionally, the philosophy behind it would probably not be complete if it did not have a concrete impact on the world. This is why all T-Lab products are free of chemicals, from the treatment of the raw material (the wood) to the paint they use. Finally, T-Lab is committed to preserving the forests of Albizia Falcata, by replanting the trees they use for creations. By doing so, they can guarantee the quality of the wood they use, and because the variety of tree they use grows faster than most, it helps decarbonize the air.
