Polepole Miniature Wooden Animals - TurtleT-lab
Polepole (poh-leh poh-leh) means slowly, slowly in Swahili, and this is how these whimsical miniatures are created. Handcrafted by skilled artisans in Bali from albizia wood, a fast-growing lightweight white wood native to the South Pacific. Each piece is painstakingly carved and sanded to a satin finish, with no oils or lacquers, then subtle details are hand painted, like the distinctive markings on this cute Turtle.
Note: Polepole are intended for gentle child’s play and home decor. Our kids do play with these, but they are NOT as sturdy as our hardwood brands.
