The Sprit of Christmas Fair, is held at Olympia, London, 3rd - 9th November 2014 and consists of a range of stands all hand picked and approved by an expert team from House and Garden. POSH Graffiti can be found on Stand E59, on the central isle of the fair, so come along and be inspired !
POSH Graffiti is a collection of wooden letters, numbers, symbols and decorative accessories created by Emily Readett-Bayley, a designer who helped to pioneer the concept of combining stylish design with an eco and ethical policy. The collection has been made by the same village rice farming community in Bali for 15 years providing the farmers with a valuable secondary income by utilizing their traditional wood carving skills. The wood used is from the albizia tree that they grows sustainably around the paddy fields.
The collection includes the most extensive range of wooden alphabets, numbers and symbols available. Hearts, musical symbols, punctuation, ohm, @, pound and dollar signs compliment the twelve different alphabets and 1-9 numerals. Sizes range from a petit 6cm to the imposing 43cm range. The finishes include gold and silver metal gilt, hand painted white, black and floral or simple natural wood. They obviously make great personalised gifts but can also be used for all sorts of signage- shop, bar, hotel, school, wedding and party or purely for customising your own home! There are lots of inspirational ideas on their website and there is even a “graffiti wall” to experiment on. A more quirky, individual effect can be achieved by mixing the sizes.
As well as the typography they will be taking their extensive range of hanging decorations which beautifully display the skill of the Balinese wood carvers who are able to recreate Emily’s designs in wood resulting in exquisitely carved hearts, stars, and a full selection of animals including birds, dogs, stags, foxes, goats, hedgehogs, frogs, rabbits, donkeys and fish! They make unusual present tags as well as the most beautiful Christmas decorations.
A new edition to the stand this year is the POSH Salvage range of rattan baskets from The Katingan Project, all ethically sourced and supporting the village communities in the forests of Indonesia. They make impressive and very practical log baskets (as well as unusual Christmas tree pots) so get prepared for these colder months.
