Stylish British Eco Design since 1990
now working to link Indonesian craftsmanship with rainforest regeneration
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 for her handcarved wooden typography sold by POSH Graffiti and her salvaged wood furniture, Emily has recently joined forces with The Katingan Project and launched operation PLANET BASKET making wicker rattan baskets. The aim is to develop the traditional rattan industry and produce baskets with a NET POSITIVE carbon footprint made by the local communities living around the project area, a 300 000 acre Ecosystem Restoration Concession made up of lowland peat rain forest, one of the most bio diverse regions of the world. The hope is that by providing alternative livelyhood options to illegal logging and oil palm cultivation, forest fires will be reduced and the forest will be allowed to regenerate.
Emily Readett-Bayley has worked with and supplied many famous retailers including Bergdorf, Conran, Harrods, John Lewis, Linley, Liberty, Nina Campbell, Rococo Chocolates, The V&A, William Yeoward and The WWF.
