A Little Piece of Mind is a charity project that has been put together by Marque – a design and branding studio who are based in Glasgow, London and New York.
Over the past six months, for the 'A Little Piece of Mind' project, Marque has been searching for the world’s expert quilt makers to create a series of contemporary quilts. And after being exhibited later in April, the quilts will be auctioned along with a digital quilt that Marque is simultaneously creating – that's where 'a little piece of mind' comes in!
The proceeds are being split between two charities who are working to help the homeless: Shelter in London and Glasgow and The Bowery Mission in New York, which is what makes this a project with a brilliant cause. And in the spirit of charity, Marque has asked those they admire and respect in the creative community to provide a little piece of their mind by submitting the fabric for the quilts.
Take a look at some of the designers who have already contributed: Boudicca, Daisy de Villeneuve, Eley Kishimoto, Fred Butler, Giles Deacon, Homework, Hussein Chalayan, Liberty, Luella, Marc Jacobs, Myla, Orla Kiely, Paul Smith, Poppy de Villeneuve, PPQ, Rachel Speed, Rankin, Richard Nicoll, Rupert Sanderson, Stella McCartney, Stephen Jones, Temperley and Vivienne Westwood.
