now working to link Indonesian craftsmanship with rainforest regeneration

Large Rattan Wicker Log Basket

Emily Readett-Bayley works directly with highly skilled, craft co-operatives in Indonesia creating her own unique range of furniture, baskets and home accessories. Best known as the creator of the original POSH Graffiti wooden lettering and a range of salvaged Javanese teak wood garden furniture, Emily has more recently started to look at the potential of traditional crafts to generate revenue for marginalised forest communities and in doing so preserve and revitalise their heritage and restore the rainforest. She is working alongside Indonesian Eco System Restoration Concessions who are protecting and regenerating natural forests. The largest is called The Katingan Mentaya Project and her aim here is to develop the traditional rattan industry and produce baskets with a NET POSITIVE carbon footprint. She is working with the Dayak communities who live around the 300 000 acres of lowland peat rain forest which makes up the concession and is in one of the most bio diverse regions of the world and home to the largest wild population of Borneo Orangutan. Another is forest area in Sumatra called Hutan Harapan where the indigenous semi nomadic Batin Sembilan people are fighting for survival alongside many critically endangered animals including the Sumatran Tiger, Elephant and Sun Bear. The hope is that by providing alternative livelihood options the forest can be managed sustainably, illegal logging and oil palm cultivation will be reduced and forest fires will be prevented.

Emily Readett-Bayley has supplied and works with many famous retailers and designers including: The Atlantic Hotel, Bergdorf Goodman, Conran, Harrods, John Lewis, Linley, Liberty, Nina Campbell, Neiman Marcus and William Yeoward and also heritage sites and charities including: The Victoria & Albert Museum, Chatsworth House, the  Royal Society for the Protection of Birds and the Worldwide Fund for Nature,
