Taxis in India, particularly in Mumbai, are not only the most convenient form of transport but have also become an iconic piece of culture. Although much attention is given to each taxi by its driver - to make it stand out from his competitors - very little thought is given to the fabric used on the seats. The designs that cover the taxi seats are often functional and forgettable and with the outstanding design talent Mumbai has to offer, this shouldn’t be the case.
Taxi Fabric is an undertaking to change this by giving designers a platform to showcase their work by designing upholstry for a taxi in the city of Mumbai.
Urban Garden for Taxi Fabric is designed to celebrate the flora and fauna in the city.
