Did you pick up this week’s Time Out magazine? If so, you might have spotted our call to help local designer James Clohessy crowd-fund his silk scarf maps of London.

We love a good map – in fact, we’re very excited about the Print Club’s map-based exhibition – but James’s silk numbers are particularly lovely because you can actually wear them as head scarves, neck scarves and ’90s triangle crop tops (if you’re feeling fancy). Or frame them and put them on your wall, whatevs.

The designer was originally hoping to raise £2,300 to pay for the first print run, but has already smashed that target, with £3,416 promised from 80 backers.

The 90cm by 90cm scarves are printed on chiffon silk and feature an original sketch of the city in either a blue or red colour-way. You can bag one by pledging £22 or more on James’ Kickstarter page, where he’s selling the scarves at trade price.
