Pattern for Yemen was an initiative by A Friend of Mine and The Souvenir Society enlisting the help of 15 local and international artists that helped raise funds for the crisis in Yemen, one of the largest humanitarian issues currently facing the global community. It was a night filled with laughter and generosity, and together we have raised and donated $40,000 for the Unicef Yemen Appeal!

The humanitarian crisis in Yemen is one of the biggest in human history, with more than 22 million people requiring humanitarian assistance and of those, as many as 8 million children under the age of 5 are acutely malnourished.

So, working with The Souvenir Society, we took it upon ourselves to design, coordinate and code for a cause with our charity project, Pattern For Yemen.

15 artists donated work to be printed onto a limited edition of 50 art cloths, which were sold online and at an exhibition and auction with all proceeds going to Unicef. We styled, shot and marketed the works via social media, our website and press.


Our incredible global line up of artists include Ronan Bouroullec, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Atelier Bingo, Marcus James, Wang & Söderström, Bec Smith, Rhonda Drakeford, Karan Singh, Michael Wall, Andy Murray, Anna Kövesces, Elke Kramer, ALL Knitwear, Tin & Ed, and Amelia Graham.


We designed and built a slightly mind-bending website with eCommerce integration, which sells the art cloths all around Australia and the world.

We hosted an exhibition, auction and pop-up shop at James Makin Gallery in Melbourne. It was a night filled with laughter and generosity, thanks to our fantastic auctioneer Andy Murray, and together we have raised over $40,000 for the Unicef Yemen Appeal!
