Mumbai’s 55,000 taxis are one of the city’s most iconic elements of culture, catering to the 21 million population. But while the outside of the cars are pristine and polished — due to drivers wishing to attract riders in a competitive market — the insides are often plain, dusty and dirty. Design, as a profession or a subject at college, is not widely recognized in India, especially to the older generations. Now, a project called Taxi Fabric wants to utilize these frequently used spaces as a platform for India’s promising illustrators, artists and designers, in an attempt to portray the power and pleasure of good design, and prove that it is a valuable and impactful skill.
