Hand-carved Wooden Letters
Emily Readett Bayley has been working with the same village rice farming community in Bali for over 25 years making her unique ethically made POSH Graffiti – wooden lettering, signage and symbols – available from our ecommerce website POSHGraffiti.com. Whole words are carved from one piece of wood and only the best of the artisans we work with can carve this. They are so difficult to make we are unlikely to continue with these words so consider them limited editions.
Many of the farmers are exceptionally skillful wood carvers and painters and they use this important secondary business to help sustain their ancient agricultural rice farming known as the Subak system. The farmers plant fast growing albizia trees around the rice fields to provide a source of wood and do not use toxic MDF. Each piece is unique and Emily has always emphasised quality over quantity resisting the lure of mass production in China.
We are thrilled to be sharing some space with Lassco the Architectural Salvage experts at their Bermondsey site under the arches at 37 Maltby Street, just south of Tower Bridge. Visit the famous Maltby Street food market that runs Friday-Sunday and pick up some vintage Emily Readett-Bayley.

The Lettering Arts Trust is a charity dedicated to the fostering of an age-old art. For centuries, human beings have felt the need to mark-make. This urge continues today and we are thrilled to play a part in its future. Mark-making is all around us – in new public works commemorating great lives or momentous events, through to statements spray-painted as graffiti.
