|With sharp mountain peaks on one side and thickly forested plains on the other, Carrara Island rises majestically from the Pacific Ocean. Like all worthy places of interest, there are a great many stories to tell about this island. But what good is a story without some characters to meet and greet? Exactly, not very interesting at all. Well, this island happens to be inhabited by a group of characters almost as remarkable as the island itself, and with the word "remarkable" in the sentence, you know something exciting is bound to happen. They are the Pecanpals and as much as I would love to introduce them all to you now, it is far better for you to find out yourself. So, have fun!|

He insists that all the knowledge you ever need to know is found in stories.

About the wood we use:
Like all Noferin wooden pieces, Pecanpals are made from 100% sustainably harvested wood. They are made from rubber tree wood that would otherwise go to waste. Rubber trees are planted for their rubber, and after about 20 years, their rubber yields start to diminish. We use this beautiful wood, thus saving it from the fire pit.
No two Pecanpals look the same. They all have very unique markings due to the wood grain. Some are spotted, some have a marbled look, some are a mixture of the two.
We are very pleased with these figures and hope that you enjoy them too.
About the artists:
Noferin is the collaboration of two parallel minds: that of Candy and Nicho.
Trained as a Graphic Designer - BDes (VisComm); BvisComm (First Class Hons) - Candy possesses an acute understanding of solid design principles. She brings these skills into her paintings; a medium that she finds to be more expressive and free.
Studying an Environmental Science degree, Nicho spends every spare moment developing the world of Noferin in a literary sense and through wooden sculpture.
Together, they delve into the whimsical world of Carrara Island and its inhabitants - meshing the fine art, design and literary worlds together in a complete and unique package.
"Our world is a living environment that grows everyday. At first, we were shaping and creating the boundaries of Carrara Island, but now the world is so vivid and real to us that our role has changed from creator to story-teller. We are the vessels for telling the stories of Carrara Island and the unique characters that call it home. Noferin wishes to take the audience on a journey of discovery that uncovers something new and quite magical with each chapter of this perpetual narrative."
