Name: The Original POSH Graffiti Old English 23cm Red Wooden Letter V.
Albizia wood, or Peacocks Plume, is a sustainable light weight wood making it ideal for our wooden letters. The carvers use this wood rather than MDF which produces dangerous carcinogenic dust when cut. The consequence is that quality not quantity is the emphasis.
Made by woodcarvers from the same village rice farming community in Bali for over 20 years. The farmers use this important secondary business to sustain their agriculture and cultivate fast growing albizia trees around their rice fields to provide the wood.
23cm Red Wooden Letter V is carefully cut out from a template before being shaped by hand with a sharp knife. The letter is then sanded down and then coated with a fine layer of gesso plaster before being gilded by hand with red metallic leaf.

Finally, each 23cm Red Wooden Letter V is then packed by the carver in it’s special box and shipped directly to the UK and posted to the customer in the same box to avoid wasteful double packing.
