We've recently welcomed to the store this delightful menagerie of wooden animals by T-Lab Japan. Called Pole Pole animals (meaning 'little by little' in Swahili), each one is hand-carved and hand-painted by skilled artisans.
Not much makes us happier at White Black Grey than a behind-the-scenes tour showing how out products are made. We hope you might be interested too, join us for a little photographic walk through the production process of these adorable animals.
The wood is sourced from the Albizia tree, one of the fastest growing tropical trees. This rapid growth allows T-Lab to produce the animals sustainably, and they are committed to replanting trees and combatting deforestation.
Smitten? Yeah, us too. See the full range here.
