Emily has always taken care to source sustainable materials and for many years has pioneered the concept of stylish design with an eco and ethical policy.
The POSH Graffiti
collection has been made by the same village rice farming community in Bali for 15 years. Farmers use this important secondary business to sustain their agriculture.We use wood from fast growing albizia trees grown by the local famers and we do not use toxic MDF. Each piece is unique and we have always emphasised quality over quantity resisting the lure of mass production in China.
In 2012 Emily was invited to become a partner on The Katingan Project an important climate change and sustainable forest management project in Indonesian Borneo
. Our role is to develop rattan and furniture workshops in the project area to utilize resources such as wasted logs salvaged from river beds and wild rattan grown in the forest to provide livelihood opportunities for the local Dayak population. The POSH Salvage
rattan baskets are the start of this partnership and the first container of rattan ever shipped direct from the Borneo jungle without going via a factory in Java or China arrived in the UK in late 2013.
